Flu shots suck!
December 18, 2012 at 12:49 PM
My doctor pretty much forced me to get a flu shot yesterday. The nurse messed up the first needle (like bent it in my arm) and my arm is killing me! It isn't bruised but its very much swollen. And on top of that, I'm super nauseous today (and I know it isn't from being pregnant bc that stuff went away) so it's safe to say, I'm regretting that darn shot! Anyone else get sick afterwards?

    I don't do them--   Sorry to hear about your experience though!

    How did the doctor make you?

    He was just very insistent on it. The flu in our area is huge right now! I've never had a flu shot so I didn't know it made you feel crappy.. But if it protects me from the flu then I guess it's worth it :/

    I encourage you to have Informed Consent through all your care.
    It is important to interview risks vs benefits, risks, and alternatives.      If this doctor acts like this now be aware it may happen more, again.      In maternity care women must self-advocate because doctors don't always work for their health-safety first.     People *do* get the flu, even after the shot and the shot comes with risks.  
    Take care, GL!
