Have you heard about this terrible meningitis outbreak? Five are dead and hundreds, maybe thousands, are at risk!
The meningitis was transmitted to people who received steroid back injections… like the ones I got. In fact the company responsible for the deadly batch sent some to Connecticut. There have been no reports of meningitis here.
The NIH says:
Bacterial meningitis infections are extremely serious, and may result in death or brain damage, even if treated.
If I was at risk, Yale, who purchased and supplied the drugs used in my two procedures, would have contacted me… right… Yale? Ditto for the physician who administered my epidurals. I’m visiting his associate tomorrow.
Meanwhile I texted a friend who’s a physician, but not involved in any of this treatment.
Geoff, if you had been given the bad stuff you’d be dead by now!
Well all right then.
