As I read through the emails in the Group about Gardasil. I did find some encouragement in this posting:
The doctor at Duke told me that from his experiance, and he has 40 years of experiance, it typically takes 1 to 2 years to recover from a vaccine injury. That really helped me, because for a while, I was losing hope that she would get better. As of tomorrow, it will be 1 year since my daughter had her 3rd shot, the shot that took her down and disabled her. She is almost completely better, she is just tired a lot now and her period is irregular.
Sometimes I worry that this will only get worse and she will have it all her life. Probably b/c I REALLY don't understand what happens when she does that shiver thing or why it goes into their knees. I just read where one girl had 4 surgeries on her knee. WHAT?!?
School went well today. She's really excited about the float trip tomorrow. I, on the other hand, am worried. They leave at 6:30 AM, return sometime in the evening. She'll do fine, but by the end of the week, I'm afraid it will catch up with her. Gosh! I have become quite the worrier. and crybaby. I cry a lot when I talk about this, not sure what that's about either. WAAAA! : ) Oh, well, life goes on. I do feel much better to think that it won't just keep getting worse. We all started taking that B12 Liquid today. I'll give it a couple of weeks and let you know. Supposed to help with energy level and immune system. Off to bed it is> can't oversleep, the girls will miss their trip! Have a good week!
