Gardisil and scoliosis
natcap88 posted:
I was wondering if any one has been told their daughter has begun to have Scoliosis after receiving the Gardisil injection. My daughter received the 2nd shot in Dec 2012 (she was 12) and in Sept of 2013 the school nurse noticed the curvature in her spine. Though out the summer she c/o lower back pain. i looked this summer for a curve and did not notice one. After reading about the young girl that aquired multiple sclorisis after getting her series of injections it made me question if this has had any bering on the problem she is beginning to have.
i also gave this immunization to my 16 yr old son with no problems.
I am an RN and felt like the benefits out weighed the risks. now ... im wondering?
