Re: Flu Vaccination if you've had swine flu?
Yes I thought he probably should but didn't want to look stupid asking the question at the Docs. I might ask them whilst I am there on Saturday for mine, they will be running a few more vaccination clinics before the winter sets in here so maybe they'll add him to one of those. Over in the UK they are still only offering the seasonal flu jab to those in 'at risk' groups, so they obviously don't include previous sufferers on that list.
He has only had a followup by way of a lung function test about 2 months after discharge, as the results of that were quite good, so they said they didn't need to see him again, but I have noticed him coughing alot recently and he has put on alot of weight from not being so active as he was before, (he has put back on the 10 kilos he lost whilst in a coma and at least another 10kg on top) the problem is .. he is Doctor phobic and not good at listening, and never wants me to come with him, its possible his Doctor has asked him to come back in a while for check ups but he probably didn't take that bit in, and unless the patient chases anything up over here it doesn't get picked up by the Doctor that he hasn't been back.
