I had a total knee replacement a while back and I told them I was allergic to drugs. However, they did not seem to care and gave me a shunt full of morphine.

I had to receive oxygen and had a bad rash mostly on the side of the body where my replacement was. Ever since then I have come down with allergic skin problems. I only had respiratory problems before this. GEE I AM TIRED OF DOCTORS SAYING THERE IS NO CONNECTION HERE. Frankly, I rather see a machine than some of these so-called people.

Don't come to New York State for medical care unless you are rich enough to go deluxe.

I believe you. I had a bad reaction to a pneumonia shot I was given after I said I would react.

My reaction was to the additives. Do you react to gelatin, preservatives, artificial flavoring, or colors?

I carry a list of things to which I've reacted. Vaccines in group doses are loaded with preservatives. Single doses are safer, but may still contain gelatin (made from pig skin).

I was constantly told by a "doctor" from New York City to get a bird as a companion. Finally as a person from Brooklyn, I asked him what is a bird going to do for me? Cook, clean, go shopping? Well I would not be able to eat eggs or have a flu shot, if I had listened to him.

I did buy a very nice pillow on sale at J.C.Penny, I never noticed until I got home that inside it was a feathered pillow. It was an after Christmas sale. Though I put it far away from me, I was in tears with an allergic reaction. Brought the pillow downstairs and stuck it in the trunk of my car. My friend was thrilled to get it and another friend let me have a similar sized one for the lovely casing for which I actually had fallen in love with.

No ... I do not have any allergic food problems but my pain level is very high and get little help from these so-called medical professionals.

Thanks Alcie, for getting back to me.
