Vaccine Injury of Michael Urbanek

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

Covid made life chaotic. My wife, who was an extremely fit personal trainer saw her whole career idled. Two of our children and one of our grandchildren had auto-immune issues. Everyone holed up in their houses and wouldn't engage, even with us. Life became unbearable and we are now divorced - after 20 years of a second marriage for both of us.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I had knee surgery at the age of 17 due to a football injury. It was a caritliage removal and repair of ligament damage. I was in a foot-to-upper thigh cast for 6 months, and that was extended another four months for adequate recovery. I gained considerable weight following the recovery and topped out at 220 lbs at the age of twenty, when I dieted and started a running regimen that lasted twenty-four years until my knees started to break down again, and I switched to spinning classes three times per week for the next 28 years, weighing between 168 and 172 lbs during that time. After undergoing TKR on both knees in 2014, I developed a visible PVC on my yearly EKG. It persisted without change until 1/22 (after 2 vaccines and a booster) when I started showing signs of AFIB, which had never been seen before. Still, there per obvious p-waves indicating it was NOT AFIB - but a very irregular heartbeat. After beginning a vigorous walking habit (with the approval of my cardiologist and pulmonologist) my resting EKGs look normal.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

I have had TKR and RTSR surgeries on both shoulders and knees, as well as an Achilles tendon tear and repair followed by a hip replacement. Still I sought the care of a pulmonologist and cardiologist to examine my ability to regain my cardiovascular abilities. So far, so good. I am taking Losartan and Amlodipine for blood pressure and Eliquis to defeat stroke threats, which I hope we can drop over time - but it isn't likely due to the cardiologist's fear regarding possibility if stroke.
