Hello doc. I’m here to tell a good news. My dad is doing well right now. The last time I updated here he went for X-ray to see if his tooth extraction caused he’s change of smell, but the x-ray revealed no abnormalities. Lumbar puncture was also done when he went back to the hospital to rule out any viral infection, thank God the result was negative. As of now he’s still taking steroids but in lower dosage to treat some’ fatigue but all in all he’s appetite changed, he still have sensitive taste and smell but he can now eat more. And he’s back to work also. He doesn’t complain anymore about any pains so I believe he’s recovering well. He’s also gaining weight as I can notice. I just hope he’ll be totally well.
