Scientific Committee Member Prof. Dr. Tevfik Özlü said that patients who recovered after receiving coronavirus treatment were exposed to the symptoms of the same disease even after a few months, and that they applied to them with complaints such as weakness, cough, chest, back pain and shortness of breath. Stating that their follow-up continues on those who have had the disease, Prof. Dr. Özlü said, “Almost half of our outpatient clinic burden as chest diseases are people who have survived Covid. Indeed, these patients actually survived Covid-19, received treatment and recovered. But his symptoms still continue. Some of them have cough, some may have complaints such as shortness of breath, weakness and fatigue in others. They become blocked during walking, especially during movement. These can sometimes last for months. When we look at it, we see that some permanent changes have started to occur in the lung graphs or we see that some changes that occur are not completely corrected. Some of them may still have positive findings in their blood tests that show a plagiarism reaction associated with Covid-19. That is why we follow them until we are sure that he has overcome the process, ”he said.
‘WILL BE PERMANENT? TIME TO SHOW’
Noting that patients inevitably have problems such as anxiety and anxiety, Prof. Dr. Özlü said, “It is not an easy disease. It is not like the pneumonia we knew before. The disease does not continue in the course we are used to. Patients survive, but sometimes continue to carry the symptoms of the disease for up to 6 months. They even worry about whether I will be any better. But in general, there is improvement over time. “Will it be permanent in some patients, time will show, and our studies continue in this direction.”
