Avatar n tn Has anyone had a baby have intussusception after getting the rotavirus vaccination? My son recently had surgery on his intestines just a week after he had the rotavirus vaccine. Some articles on line say there may be a link.

Avatar n tn I am currently living in the dominican republic and one doctor here said, "she would need to receive the first and second dose again - much like when one doesn't obtain the Hep B shots on time..." and yet another doctor told me that, "she will just need a stronger dose to complete the prevnar innoculation". As you can imagine, this is a concern for me I need to know what dose is appropiate for my 22 months old approximately 27 pound little girl.
Avatar f tn I cant remember if my daughters pediatrician gave her the rotavirus vaccine before we left Michigan..She is now 2months old and when we went to get her 2 months shot done, they gave her the rotavirus vaccine orally, here in mexico..Will she be sick or anything?
458072 tn?1291415186 federal health authorities recommended … that doctors suspend using Rotarix, one of two vaccines licensed in the U.S. against rotavirus, saying the vaccine is contaminated with material from a pig virus,” CNN reports. The Rotarix vaccine, which is made by GlaxoSmithKline and was approved by the FDA in 2008, has already been given to about 1 million U.S. children along with 30 million worldwide. The vaccine was found to contain DNA from porcine circovirus 1.
Avatar f tn Need information about pnemonia & Rotavirus side effects. Are side effects common and be curable?
Avatar f tn I was curious if anyone knew- hypothetically, if your child has received 2 rotavirus vaccinations, and you opt to not have any more, does it hurt them to not have the full amount? Why do they have several of the same ones anyway, such as the DTAP and that?
8101930 tn?1420001456 My son is 2 months and just received his first shots yesterday including the rotavirus vaccine. I noticed that after his shots and today he has been pooping yellow colored like normal but it is very chunky. He is exclusively breast fed and always has a little bit of a seedy stool but this is very chunky. I'm Just curious if anyone knows if this is normal or not. Could it be from the rotavirus vaccine because they do ingest it. Thanks.
Avatar m tn At 2 months she was to get dtap and rotavirus. The dtap vaccine that was requested was daptacel and I asked to double check. A couple days later it was realized that the pediarix combo vaccine (dtap, polio, and hep b) was given instead. I don't want to keep giving the combo and would rather give the daptacel. Do I continue on with dtap schedule using different brand or do I need to start over?
Avatar m tn and in early life was infected with giardia and rotavirus (4 month old immediately after weaning) does this affect the GI healing and repar after treating them?
142722 tn?1281533616 She got the oral rotavirus vaccine which is a live virus and she seems to have an upset stomach and is pooping more...possibly just a coincidence. They said the virus will be excreted in her poop for 2 weeks so to be extra careful about washing my hands after I change her so I don't pass it in.
Avatar n tn There is now a controversy about the value of mammograms. I had a 1.1 tumor. I had a lumpectory and radiation and am on Tamoxifen. It was discovered on a mammagram although it couldn't be felt. My surgeon was on TV last night defending mammograms, saying that the earlier the diagnosis the better. What is your position?
Avatar m tn It is counter-productive and is just causing more controversy between all of the great folks on here. You are ALL caring and wonderful people, so please get back to helping each other which you do so well. I think posting to try to get lasherslaugh back on here is, of course, of high priority, and should be continued. She needs you ALL. If you agree with me, please do not respond to me or bring up the controvery.
Avatar n tn My 3 month old son has been having 9-10 green mucousy stools per day since he received his 2nd dose of the Rotavirus vaccine, Rotateq. It has been 10 days with no improvement. He is in a lot of pain before and during a bowel movement. Other than that, he seems perfectly fine. Is this a common side effect of the vaccine? How long will this last? What can I do to help him get better?

287246 tn?1318570063 I have a 22month old client with a trach and g-tube and she had rotavirus, this was like 2 weeks ago, causes diarrhea, i didnt go in to work while she had bcuz i didnt want to get anything on me and give it to Trinity. But ever since she has been in daycare she always get sick, now she has given her cold to me and LaDell, we both started taking vitamin c to hopefully prevent us from getting sick.
223520 tn?1221440283 So that was the first thing that got me upset. Then the nurse comes in and gets ready to give my son the rotavirus vaccine. I was like he has never had it. She proceeds to give it to him!! I was like um, can you ask the dr. about it? She was like fine. So he comes in and was like Im soo sorry!! I was like OMG! WHAT?! He was like we should have never given him the rotavirus vaccine, since he has never had it. He was like I assumed he had it before. I am freaking out!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn May have caught it from me? Had shots today for the 1 year. Tubes look great. Has rotavirus?
Avatar f tn is the best person to advise you, but I can tell you from personal experience with a very long tummy virus (my 2 year old had rotavirus..it lasts a very long time) the most important thing to watch for is dehydration. Water does not do the trick. It's best to give her pedialight, apple juice diluted with water, even ginger ale (complelely flat, no bubbles) diluted with water. She needs the salts and sugars to stay properly hydrated. I also found plain chicken broth worked well.
