According to the CDC, “The answers are relatively simple: monoclonal antibodies are man-made proteins that can help your body fight off COVID-19 and reduce the risk of severe disease and hospitalization—if administered to high-risk patients soon after diagnosis.”
I started having COVID-19 symptoms a couple of weeks ago, and I apologize that I didn’t get to let you all know. They work! I wasn’t trying to be private, I was taking care of myself, but I am here to tell you about these monoclonal antibodies.
I think I was on Day 6 when I traveled to the hospital on a Saturday afternoon, and they tested me for COVID-19, which only took about an hour, and after it came back positive, they hooked me up and gave me the monoclonal antibodies.
I think what made me go in was when I lost my smell and taste. Up to that point, the first couple of days, I had a continuous nagging cough, slight fever, slight breathing issues, and many aches in the body.
Here’s what I used during the first five days of COVID-19 like symptoms:
- Halls Cough Drops
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D3
- Pepcid AC
- Vitamin A
- Orange and Pineapple Juice
- Clementine Oranges and Bananas
- Chicken Noodle Soup
- Pulse Oximeter – measured my oxgen levels and heart rate
- Thermometer – measured my temperature reading
After receiving the antibodies, I rested (which I am still actually doing). I sweated for about two days after the hospital visit. My urine was dark yellow. I begin to feel better, and oh yes, I have not had the vaccine.
Just to let you know, the COVID-19 virus was brought into the house by a family member, so up until then, for the last year and a half, I had been doing everything I needed to do to stay away from the virus.
After the antibodies and fluids they gave me, I added in an attempt to get my taste back.
- Vitamin A
- Vicks Vapor Rub For the chest
- Peppermint Gum
- Saline Nasal Spray
I currently have traded in all my vitamins for a gummy multivitamin that I take daily. I think the peppermint gum and nasal spray have helped out tremendously, but I still have distorted flavor here and there. My taste and smell are coming back but are not all the way back.
I had heard that many people had their taste and smell rewired for months and months. With my penchant for cooking and posting recipes, you know me, that was a no-go for me.
All in all, the antibodies have worked for me, and I am feeling my old self. I am taking it easy, however, and I am still in rest mode, but I am almost at day 14 (Monday, Oct 11), and we’ll see where things go from there.
I hoped this helped someone. Leave your comments below if you’ve gone through and your “cocktail” has helped you recover from COVID-19 symptoms.
I am not telling you to get the vaccine, I am explaining what I did to get past COVID-19 without the vaccine, and right now, I am feeling good.
