Flu Shot Causes Minneapolis Woman To Have Shoulder Surgery
A Minneapolis woman claims she had to have a surgical procedure following the injection of a flu shot into her arm. The surgery corrected the woman’s SIRVA, a condition that occurs following a poorly injected flu shot.
The woman, Jacalyn Broze, says she consistently receives flu shots. However, this time, the flu shot caused her pain days following the injection.
According to CBS’s Minneapolis affiliate, WCCO, Broze felt discomfort within a day’s time.
She complained of intense pain in the same shoulder the flu shot was injected. Her local pharmacy where she got the shot called her pain normal and temporary.
A few weeks later, Broze’s chiropractor became concerned that her shoulder was slumping.
Broze saw doctors, but none felt her situation to be severe or extreme.
Broze finally got clarity as to the severity of her issue from a shoulder surgeon.
“The surgeon had me do another MRI, and everything had fallen off. A complete tear of the rotator cuff,” Broze said.
Broze was diagnosed with SIRVA as a result of the flu shot.
While Broze’s experience was painful and difficult, she still encourages people to receive the flu shot.
“I would not tell anyone not to get a shot, but just being careful how it’s given,” Broze said.
I’m not sure I’d feel the same; however, I’ve never had a flu shot in the first place.
