“This is a tweet to block Family members. If you’re getting the MRNA vaccine in the US, I’d like to give you a little ADDITIONAL information ……”
If you see this news of a near-death vaccination being forwarded like crazy in your circle of friends or in your WeChat group, don’t be surprised and don’t be suspicious. Yes, it really happened in Los Angeles, just this past weekend.
Aki is the mother of two children, a 31 year old healthy and beautiful girl from Wuhan. She is a health care worker by profession, a level 1a occupation, one of the first professions to be approved for vaccination. When asked by the reporter about her mindset when she first got the vaccine, Aki confessed that she had concerns before playing, knowing that the MRNA vaccine was toxic and more risky than inactivated vaccines, and that colleagues who had already gotten the vaccine had feedback on uncomfortable side effects such as fever and chills. But considering that more people would get the vaccine so that we could resume our normal lives sooner, Aki decided to get the vaccination.
Aki felt lucky that she had no reaction to the first dose of Modena vaccine a week ago. It was not until the early hours of last Saturday morning, when she was ready to take a shower and go to bed, that she suddenly found black blood bubbles on her tongue in her mouth, and it was not the fire she thought it was. Equipped with medical knowledge and extremely sensitive, she then noticed some bruises and bleeding spots on her body, and she realized that her body had started to bleed and it could be an acute blood disorder. Since then, she began the battle between herself and death.
When Aki realized something was seriously wrong with her body, she used a Chinese telemedicine software to register with the head of the stomatology department of a tertiary care hospital and uploaded photos to ask for help in determining her condition. Because it was early Saturday morning, no family doctor or specialist was available. Aki immediately arranged for her husband to take care of the two children at Home and drove herself to the hospital emergency room at 3:00 am.
When the first test results came out, the doctor was dumbfounded to see that the platelets were only 3000, and anything less than 10,000 was an emergency! The first thing you need to do is to get a good idea of what you’re looking for.
Thrombocytopenic purpura, a bleeding disorder characterized by thrombocytopenia, is mainly characterized by a bleeding tendency of the skin and organs as well as a significant reduction in platelets. Common symptoms include skin purpura, petechiae, petechiae, oral and nasal mucosal bleeding. And the possible causes are: immune destruction ① drug-related antibodies. ② Certain diseases with abnormal immune response. ③Infection-associated thrombocytopenia. ④Alloimmune thrombocytopenia.
Aki searched Google mrna vaccine and ITP by herself and found that there are more than 30 such cases. This is a severe disease, a severe disease with extreme Life threatening effects. The vaccine produced antibodies and the antibodies attacked Aki’s platelets, a disease where the immune system fights each other.
In early January, a male doctor in Florida died of severe thrombocytopenia causing a brain hemorrhage 16 days after receiving the Pfizer New Crown vaccine. That doctor’s condition became public knowledge and Aki communicated his case and the information he searched for to his treating doctor before that doctor had the absolute nerves to assemble a team of experts, go to the Red Cross to transfer platelets, and proceed cautiously with treatment. If the Florida doctor’s case had not been made public, doctors would have been feeling their way through any sudden side effects at the Time of the first large-scale application of the new crown vaccine to humans. The doctor in Florida left in exchange for the chance to live in the dozens of cases that followed.
Day 2: Aki’s character was strong and would not back down. After a bag of platelets transfused on the first day, Aki’s number rose from 3,000 to 30,000, then dropped to 8,000 the next morning and a second bag of platelets was transfused. At her strong request, she was given IVIG immunoglobulin, which is used to control the antibodies produced by the vaccine from attacking platelets and other normal antibodies. This disease is not dangerous as long as the platelets go up, but if they never go up, it can be life-threatening.
Aki did not rely on the treatment plan given by the doctor and continued to use her medical knowledge to search for a suitable treatment plan for herself. However, some doctors were strict and responsible, and it was easy for Aki to communicate and reach a consensus with them, while others were not and were not willing to listen to the patient’s requests. Every morning when she changed doctors, Aki had to repeatedly communicate her findings to the new primary care physician, and a different order of medication could result in a completely different outcome. Many people trust their doctors completely, and not everyone has the courage to discuss with them how they want to be treated and how they want to be medicated. The use of immunoglobulin was something she fought for herself after finding a treatment plan for the same case as her own, the only ITP case that was written up in a research paper.
Aki says she has a strong personality and is not one to back down easily. Aki considers herself lucky to have caught her symptoms in time and to have fought for the right treatment plan for herself.
Lying in her hospital bed, Aki repeatedly thought about what else she could do. How to make sense of this tiny probability of an event coming to her? She contacted Modena and firmly told her primary care doctor and hematologist to report her case, and if needed, she could even come forward, without privacy, and tell everyone about this rare but serious vaccine side effect.
I’m not anti-vaccine, but anyone who is going to get vaccinated deserves to know the truth,” Aki said. If anyone is unfortunate enough to get ITP purpura from vaccinations like I did, doctors should have a standard set of treatment criteria. I contacted Modena, and my plea is that either on their own or in conjunction with Pfizer, they should collect data, do research, and have a set of guiding treatment protocols. So that all those who have the disease, or at least their families, are not as helpless as Dr. Michael who died in Florida, and they do not watch their treatment plan go back and forth with the same roller coaster emotion that I do every day. I believe in the benevolence of science and the kindness of doctors, but I also believe that it is the suffering of patients that drives this. If no one reports it, no one will study it; without research, all those who have the disease are mice, being tested over and over again with different treatment options.”
Day 3 Don’t be afraid in the face of the unknown After the second bag of platelets was transfused, it went up to 54,000, and on the third morning it was still 54,000 when I checked again, which was very good news and Aki was relieved.
The new attending doctor told Aki that she could be discharged today. Although she missed her two babies, she was afraid that her platelets would drop again after discharge and she would have to be readmitted to the hospital. In addition, her blood sugar was very unstable because of the glucocorticoids and she had taken a small dose of insulin the night before. With one more day of glucocorticosteroids to take, Aki was worried about her blood sugar and decided to talk to her doctor before she was discharged.
The attending doctor came over and said two things in a stern tone, firstly, that high blood sugar would not kill her, and secondly, that there was no guarantee that her platelets would not drop, so she decided whether to discharge herself or not. Not getting any professional advice from the attending doctor, Aki wanted to learn more before deciding, so she asked to talk to a hematologist. Aki decided to stay one more day and wait for the final results on the morning of the fourth day in order not to be hospitalized.
The hope of life was perseverance. Aki was a native of Wuhan, with all of her family in the city that was the vortex of the communist virus outbreak. She believes she will pull through in the end, just like her hometown! Because both received kindness and encouragement from too many people, she will try to persevere.
During the three days that Aki was in the hospital, some kind-hearted people posted the original picture of her friend circle to Douban and Chinese social media, and many others reached out to help her spread the word to more people, which made her feel that she was unfortunate but not alone. aki also reached out to the English media, hoping that the side effects of the vaccine would attract wider attention, and has not yet responded. She used her time off from the hospital bed to open a public WeChat number “566 Lady” (strong566lady) and TikTok, saying she did not need any kind of donation and did not want to file a lawsuit for compensation at this stage. She doesn’t want to be a netizen, she just wants the vaccination illness to be reported fairly and objectively, so that more people who are ready to get vaccinated can have a psychological preparation, and if someone is unfortunate, they can at least see hope through her case. It’s enough to make a small difference!
As of press time, it was the fourth day since Aki was admitted to the hospital with the disease. In the afternoon, she sent good news – she was discharged from the hospital. While she was waiting for the life-saving platelets from the American Red Cross, she thought that if the platelets didn’t improve, she would go after the doctor and become part of the clinical trial. If the worst happened, she could do her part in advancing Medicine and be considered an ideal person in her life.
She still has a lot of things to do, a lot of ideals to achieve, and a lot of love to say.
