I just got back from the doctor's office were I got my flu shot for the year. These are such good people and they are completely patient-focused! They take such great care of me! And to think, I "found" this doctor by calling my insurance company and saying, "I've moved, I need a new doctor — who ya got?" Beyond a feeling of gratitude, I'm glad the flu shot is over for another year!

Well, this is certainly something you should discuss with your doctor. Did you have a bad reaction to the flu shot before your heart diagnosis? I know we, as heart patients, are considered a high priority for getting flu shots. Me, I've got CHF, so it's harder for me to get over an infection than it is for someone without CHF. Ending up in the hospital sounds a bit extreme and certainly gives a person a reason to pause! But it sounds like it's worth a talk with the doc.
