I was diagnosed in February 2021 with Stage 1 T-cell lymphoma, but there was hope due to the stage of cancer. The only reason I got my vaccine was because my oncologist strongly encouraged me to get it, even after I told her I was worried about it because of my immune cancer. I avoided it for 6 months because my gut said I wouldn’t fare well, and I was correct. Coincidentally, my oncologist quit her job shortly after… I wonder why?
Two weeks after the second Pfizer vaccine, I developed neuropathy in my left leg and foot. I had shooting, electric shock like pains into my toes. This progressed, so that now I have pain in many areas of my body – including lung, chest, abdomen, and severe daily headaches. I have also developed a dangerous autoimmune clotting disorder called Hughes syndrome (also known as antiphospholipid syndrome), however, I only know this because I’m a R.N. I have tried to get it diagnosed and treated by two hospitals (PT Regional and Sunnybrook), only to be turned away once they were aware it was related. I need brain aneurysm surgery, and I have had a history of a pulmonary embolism 25 years ago, so this is especially urgent, but I think they’re hoping I die to be honest. Less evidence that way. Malpractice to the highest degree!
I reported my reaction to my neurosurgeon on March 7th, 2022, and pleaded that he call the ER to have me assessed. He refused. He told me that the ER was open and to go down after I was done with him. He added that I may need to wait hours, only to be told to go to my GP.
I left crying, and three days later I tried a different hospital ER, Peterborough Regional. I presented with severe headaches, blurred vision and chest pain, as well as livedo reticularis – this is a skin symptom, and refers to a netlike pattern of reddish-blue skin discoloration. The condition is linked to swollen blood vessels.
Only basic lab work and ECG was done and I was sent home. The doctor was aware of two aneurysms needing surgery, but still did not address the issues at hand.
My life has been completely turned upside-down. Not only medically, but mentally and financially as I cannot work. As previously mentioned, I’ve been trying to get diagnosed officially, and treated, but until I threatened my GP’s office a few days ago, nothing had been done. Today, I finally had blood work done after educating my GP on antiphospholipid syndrome. Here’s hoping I survive until follow-up and treatment. Yes it’s been hell, and a seemingly hopeless 6 months.
I’d like others to know that you need to be your own advocate, researcher, and scientist during these times! I’m devastated as I’m 55 and worked as a RN for 27 years. This is criminal malpractice and people need to be held accountable – right from big pharma down to the doctors and nurses who are seeing this travesty, but not stepping forward to honor their oaths!
