My grandmother believes that a doctors word is gospel. She will take any medication, vaccine, shot that the doctor suggests.
She was in the hospital for pnemonia a few months ago. While she had pnemonia, the nurse came in to give her a pnemonia vaccine, and a flu shot. I cried and begged my grandmother not to. I even played the "cultured on embryo card" and she still sided with the doctor.
She has NEVER EVER been sicker in her life. She is recooped FINALLY from the pnemonia, but has a list of new diagnoses. She can't walk without a cane, and looks so sickly. She is on oxygen now, and more meds.
New diagnoses after "recooping" are rhemetoid arthritis, elevated SED rate, fibromyalgia, COPD, and high potassium.
New meds as of last week are anti inflametory meds, oxygen, nebulizer, and I'm sure more to come!
She ONLY HAD PNEMONIA before these shots. How do I convince her to stop? How do I advocate for her, if she can't do it herself.. is that even legal? I want to make her doctor pay.. I"m angry because I think the shots made her sicker.
What would you do?
