HPV Vaccine has changed my life
Karla is a girl who has never before been ill. On 6th February at 8:30 am she went to school in a perfect state. At 9:30 am she got the second shot At 10:00 am while she was in the playground of the school, she fainted and lost consciousness. For half an hour she did not answer, so they called an ambulance. She started with temperature, seizures and she lost her sight. From that moment on the nightmare began, she was admitted to the same hospital, first at Emergency Doors and after in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit. While we were at Emergency Doors a doctor called the School Headmaster and the parents and asked them not to discuss the fact that there was another girl who also had a reaction to the HPV vaccine in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at the same time as Karla.
Her stay in hospital lasted nearly two months with several admissions to the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit. She was even intubated (on a breathing machine). She also had problems with her kidney.
The doctors gave us several diagnoses: they said it could be a toxic reaction, an immunological reaction (for that reason she was given immunoglobulin). Drastically, they changed their mind and said it was a psychological problem, that she had “Pseudo crisis”.
Nowadays, Karla is at home, she has been suffering strong headaches, although she is much better now. But she cannot have a normal life like other teenagers of her age, she could not go to school for three months, she could not go to the cinema with her friends since she had always muscular pains in her feet, tremors in her hands and other symptoms that we did not expect and which came suddenly. We always had to be on alert.
We want to say to all families who have teenagers that they should not allow their daughters to have this vaccine. See what happened to our daughter. NO HPV VACCINE, PLEASE!
