I got diagnosed with the flu on thurs I had symptoms on tues now I'm taking tamiflu (oseltamivir) how long do you think it will take to go away?
3-5 days: The Tamiflu (oseltamivir) will shorten the course of the flu, but it must be taken soon after the onset of symptoms. You were just the at the border line for that.

I got the flu a few months ago but the cough won't go away even though i tried 2 doctors' treatments now i feel cold and i have back and ribs pain?
I had the flu and was puking all night, now ihave popped blood vessels on my skin and my head hurts everytime i cough, will this pain go away?
Yes: If this is in fact influenza you will get better over a period of two weeks or so. Unless you get a secondary bacterial infection you will not benefit from an antibiotic. As long as you are not getting worse after the miserable first five days or so you will continue to gradually improve. If this is influenza it helps to understand why flu shots are recommended. ...Read more
Is it normal for a sore throat to get worse at night? I had the flu that started with a sore throat and it won't go away. It's worse at night.
Hi, i've had a soar throat for 3 days now, my ears hurt also, muscles too, i know the flu is going around, what's the best i can do to get better fast?
I have the flu and strep and I have a talent show tomorrow. Is there anything i can to do get better fast?
Unlikely: If you have influenza, plan on being ill for 7-10 days. The severity and duration may be reduced(by about 2days) with tamiflu (oseltamivir). Strep throat treatment is with an appropriate antibiotic, and many begin to feel improvement within 24-48hours. Sorry, but i don't think you should plan on the talent show. You aren't likely to feel well enough, and, especially with influenza, may be contagious. ...Read more
Can a stage 2 rcc grow fast from nov 12 to mar 13? She got the flu and could not do surgery until she got better. Worried..
Talk to your doctor.: Renal cell carcinoma (rcc) is a cancer of the kidney. Staging is not definite till after tumor is removed. Stage 2 rcc is a tumor only in the kidney and bigger then 7 centimeters (~3 inches). Rcc on average grows at a rate of about 0.3 cm/year (1/8 of an inch), so in 4 months it should not grow very much. However, metastatic disease is always a risk, but unlikely in only 4 months. ...Read more
Everytime am sick with the flu I hate the sent of my vaginal discharge, it stinks bad and fast, is it the flu? If not, then what?
Bacterial vaginosis?: This has nothing to do with influenza or any other respiratory or gastrointestinal infection. You have a vaginal infection, most likely bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of mostly normal bacteria. But possibly an STD like trichomonas, gonorrhea, or chlamydia. See a doctor soon for diagnosis and treatment. Good lucki! ...Read more
