Hey folks! I just realized I have seen my PA,for a B-12 injection and my GI this week. Niether brought up the subject of flu shots. Was it my responsibility to ask??? I am not really on top of my game right now,and did not even think about it.

It's just so human... The PA/GI is busy and lost in his/her own concerns and pressures and does not think of all the things that need to be said or asked. The patient, sick and maybe not fully up on what they need to ask/say, misses something. You almost need a coach watching your illness and making sure that the doctor knows the details of your case.

You should be able to phone somewhere for the info you need and then you can decide where and when or if you need a flu shot.

No worries. It happens to all of us. It also might be that they do not have it. Just have on the planner for next b-12 shot.

Thanks. Somedays my brain does not function very well! The pain,due to this colon and darn fistula/ abscess does get to me. It also did not help that she suggested I need to have the thing drained again, and a seton inserted. By God's grace, it could be much worse.

This disease does do something to the cognitive function, since it is usually transiant, I also think it has something to do with pain and malnutrition.
