Brittany Burnette

What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?

I was a director of nursing at a skilled and long-term care facility. I was ambulatory and actively involved with my two young children.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

1st dose of Pfizer 1/11/2021, 2nd 2/1/21, pericarditis and pluerisy end of 7/2021, initial pain in bilateral hips 7/2021 (several doctors and being mis-diagnosed); finally diagnosed with avascular necrosis in 10/2021. Both hips collapsed and I was in a wheelchair until first total hip replacement 12/20/21. After first hip surgery bilateral knee pain developed and after diagnostic testing I was diagnosed with avascular necrosis in both knees. 2nd total hip replacement 5/20/21 after this surgery left shoulder started hurting and after diagnostic testing avascular necrosis was noted in my shoulder as well. Bilateral total knees and left total shoulders are in my best future.

I have a short video I made that I would love to share with y’all about my journey so far.
