40-year-old man with Pericarditis after the Pfizer vaccine
French man laments “all this for a vaccine I didn’t want” after developing life-altering pericarditis from Pfizer injection
REVELSTOKE, BRITISH COLUMBIA — Mr. Fabien Stocco was an active, healthy single father of two, navigating his way through COVID-19 dystopia prior to Thanksgiving. But the 40-year-old is now uncertain if his life will ever return to what it once was.
Mr. Stocco received his first Pfizer mRNA injection on Friday, November 26. Less than a week later, he started experiencing severe chest pain and shortness of breath while shoveling snow. He checked into the emergency room on December 3 when the chest pains worsened. Mr. Stocco was back in the emergency room on December 6 when his condition did not improve after the first visit.
Doctors diagnosed him with post-injection pericarditis after five hours of examination.
They prescribed anti-inflammatory medication, magnesium and ibuprofen. Doctors told Mr. Stocco to come back if the pain persisted thereafter. He posted a short video on Facebook as he was leaving the hospital.
Mr. Stocco tried getting back to normal life after that visit. But simple things like taking a shower had become very cumbersome due to his condition. “Normal” life now included several naps everyday to revive himself after doing anything that required physical movement, including walking. He does not even feel confident driving long distances, and had to reach out to friends and family for rides to doctor appointments.
By Wednesday, December 8, the chest pain got so bad that Mr. Stocco thought he was having a heart attack. The pain also triggered a panic attack. He called 911 and, again, was taken to the emergency room. Mr. Stocco had a resting heart rate was 44 beat per minute. A normal resting heart rate is between 60 to 100 bpm for a man his age. However, doctors figured the low heart rate was due to Mr. Stocco being so athletic.
Despite all the treatments, his condition simply wasn’t improving like he thought it would. On top of all that, Mr. Stocco is also having to deal with another issue that nearly all vaxx-injured people must endure.
