Good news! Andy Cohen was happy to report today that he was feeling better and and returning to @radioandysxm this morning.
On it, he spoke about testing positive for COVID-19 and his subsequent recovery.
Cohen said he was extremely fatigued: “It takes a bit to get your energy back. There’s a thing where you feel mentally like ‘I think I’m okay’ and then you go downstairs and make a piece of toast and you come upstairs and you’re like ‘I need to relax.’
He said he took a lot of Tylenol and Vitamin C while he fought the symptoms of fever, tightness in his chest, a cough, lots of aches and pains, some chills, loss of smell and appetite.
He recommended that people buy a Pulse Oximeter, a device which attaches to one’s fingertip and measures pulse and oxygen saturation in the body, to monitor the stress the virus is putting on the lungs.
“That’s my pro tip. Make sure you have Tylenol and a Pulse Oximeter.”
