Dr. Drew contracted the virus in December and months later and is still dealing with symptoms. He has chronicled his battle with the virus on Instagram and says, "You don't want this... this thing is a beast." He shares he dealt with fever, chills, back pain, cough, shortness of breath, feeling dazed and in a fog, a ringing in his ear, and fatigue.
Now that he has dealt with COVID, he tells The Doctors he now has a better perspective on the virus and says he can look at it from both the doctor and patient perspective.
His battle with the virus helped him learn there are steps people can take to stay out of the hospital if they do become infected, and he says oftentimes it can be done at home. Dr. Drew recommends speaking with your healthcare provider via telemedicine about getting steroids and antibodies prescribed to you remotely. Dr. Drew explains he had a nurse come to his home to give him an IV infusion of a monoclonal antibody and notes this infusion is often covered by insurance for people with mild to moderate COVID. He shares the infusion is widely available and for many patients, it can help keep them from being hospitalized. He also suggests not going to the emergency room unless your oxygen levels desaturate or have shortness of breath.
Dr. Drew is happy to share he is "mostly back" to normal but says he is still feeling fatigued from time to time.
