That's unfortunate. I didn't have a choice when my scope point in my knee became infected after coming back from Iraq and they just jammed that swab into my knee... Though my knee was also leaking fluid, so that had something to do with it.

In any case, here in bmore, I just have to suggest I've got an infection and they'll swab me. Happened to me with a sore throat once. One time it truly was strep throat and the next time it was nothing. All I had to do was suggest it and they ordered the test.


The swabbing for strep throat is done a lot, but only if there is signs of strep throat present when they look.

Well that's good. I just couldn't see throat cultures going unchecked. Keep in mind that not all bacteria out there are super bugs. Sometimes maintaining good resistance is properly fighting the easy to kill guys too. Even the swabs that determine if you have strep or not are important.

If I had just gone ahead with my assumption that I had strep the second time, I could have done some serious damage to my immunity to it since I'd be taking an antibiotic and not needing it. That's how those superbugs appear that you hear about sometimes in the news.


The problem is that sometimes the test for Strep doesn't work in some cases. That is what the doctor told my granddaughter and I when we were in to see him when she had signs of strep throat. A week later she was back and the test was positive but not in the original test.

According to the doctor, in the early strep infections the test doesn't always work. But what does he know.

There are parameters on what the information on tests can be used. Some doctors and healthcare professionals know those parameters well, others didn't pay attention to them in school. They do teach this in medical school somewhat. But if you believe the tests are always conclusive, you don't pay attention to the parameters. Belief governs what you learn, so do desires. If you desire to be an expert at understanding how to apply the information on the tests, you can research it and find the whole truth.

It looks like this is now a consideration, call it what you want, repeal and replace...repair...trumpcare, just do the best thing for Americans.


And those who don't want it and never voted for it aren't Americans, I guess?
