    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Flu Shot,

Recommended Posts

Guest Jim S.

B) Have you had your Flu shot yet? Did you come down with Flu like symptoms a couple of weeks later?

I've been gettomg my Flu shot every year on strong advice from my PCD and Lung Dr. due to the fact that I am in that high risk group who could have serious consequences should I get the Flu. Well this year I stepped up and got my Flue shot and now I've been practically bed ridden with Flu like symptoms and my PCDr says I can expect about another week of these symptoms and should I get a temperature or an increase in my symptoms, to not delay but to come back in.

I wonder sometimes if the Flu shot is any good for the current strain of flu being spread around that year.

I also wonder what damage this current episode is doing to my lungs. I feel like my lungs are going to burst during the coughing spells I have. I have had to sit in a chair to sleep and that isn't any goog on my legs and their poor circulation..

Anyway, I was just wondering how many of the members have had the misfortune of getting this bug that is going around?

I had the flu shot and a pneumominia shot this go around and I felt like the pneumonia one did a job on me. I also belong to the high risk group and feel that I cannot afford to miss getting my annual flu shot.

Good Luck and hope that you get to feeling better soon.

Have you been x- rayed for pneumonia? I came down with it this summer, it is a bear to deal with. I was bed ridden for two weeks with flu like symptoms, hard to breath, coughing,went to the doctor & x-rays showed pneumonia. Be careful & don't mess around, i would be willing to bet this is what you have, see a doctor.

Hello Jim,

my records show i'm alergic to the flu vaccine. It's been some time since I had one, but remember I was very sick for a while.

I'm also in a high risk, but other than taking, "C" & B-12., i'm not sure what I can do about it. I'm fighting a cold right now.

The VA tried to charge me $20 for a bottle of vitimins recently, So I would advize keeping a close I on those statements.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
