Public Health & Human Life Should Not be Held Hostage by Politics

We all know that it’s risky to be a good, honest, conscientious, caring doctor during this time, so please pray for Dr. Cesar Gomez’s safety.

From an anonymous poster in an Internet group:

“I’ve kept this quiet, but after reading the condemnation and censorship of the “frontline doctors,” I thought I would share my story.

I contracted Covid and had the battle of my life for three weeks. Fever, chills, uncontrollable coughing, muscle aches and a migraine that literally lasted 10 days. Those symptoms were akin to a severe flu, but double pneumonia was definitely a different beast.

My lungs filled with fluid. I could not lay down, could barely walk across the room, and several times thought I wouldn’t catch my next breath.

I was taken to the ER. They confirmed double pneumonia, tested me, and said I could be put on a vent or go home. Seriously. No other option. I’ve read too many stories of people not getting off vents so I went home in hopes I would get better on my own. I didn’t. My lungs only got worse.

One night around 10:30, Megan received a call from the daughter of a Dallas doctor and said her dad had a 100% success rate with Covid patients. Her dad, Dr. Cesar Gomez, prescribed a treatment he said multiple doctors were using with high success.

He called in a prescription of hydroxychloroquine, Zithromax, Zinc, a nebulizer with Budesonide, along with Vitamins A and D.

When I woke the next morning I was already beginning to feel a tad better. By the next day I knew I was going to be ok. My lungs were improving and the migraine was gone. Within 48 hours I was walking and breathing much better. It worked and possibly saved my life.

Yesterday I saw the same media who say we should stay in, close businesses, wear masks, all to protect the most vulnerable…come out and attempt to shame and debunk a group of doctors who say they can help. I wear a mask, I social distance, but I almost died from a virus without a vaccine. A treatment saved me, yet the first action by half of our country was not to listen with hope, but to say one of the doctors had weird beliefs, therefore, we shouldn’t listen. The doctors couldn’t be right, especially since Trump mentioned a similar treatment in March.

I am not a Trump fan, not a Biden fan. At all. I think they both act like children. But, the lives of thousands should have NOTHING to do with which way you vote. Nothing. I don’t know the doctors in that vid, few of us do, but if there is help we should rationally consider it.

Covid has become a political conversation. Period. We may not want to admit it, but it has. If Trump says it, it’s wrong. If Trump says it, it’s right. And, that is a terrible mark on our maturity, intelligence and love for others.

Let’s be bigger than politicians who are attempting to be puppet masters in lieu of a November election. If a treatment works, we should shout it to the rooftops, no matter which way we vote.

Does it work for everyone? I don’t know. Are there side effects? Maybe, but I figured any side effect was better than dying. (The only side effect I can pinpoint was light sensitivity for about a week.) Bottomline, I was told there was no treatment option and I feel very blessed to have found one that worked. Why fight that if you/me/we truly care about others?

My thought? Let doctors make medical decisions and keep politicians where they belong. Let doctors do what they are trained to do, and let media be talking heads.

Stop trying to “debunk” everything that doesn’t agree with your political narrative. Please. Let’s be good and better humans.

If you know someone with Covid have them speak to their PCP. Get a second opinion, if needed. I wouldn’t recommend any regimen unless under the care of a physician. And, if you’re in the Dallas area, feel free to call Dr. Gomez’s office at 972-494-6713. There are doctors willing to help. Find one that will.”
