I recall the TABT and the 2 'booster' shots at 3 monthly intervals with lots of 'luverly' drill and marching afterwards..."so it gets right around your system". I was in the medical centre for 48 hours within 24 hours of having the damn thing.

BUT.... if you think they are bad... try a caurtizoidal 'injection' into the nerve roots in your spine, at 6 levels!!  All done 'live' without anesthesia [you do get a nice sedative, but personally I have been more sedated on old maids tea!!] all done in an O.R under a live X-Ray machine [so the Doc. doesn't hit the nerves, supposedly!].... the absolute perfect torture!!! You re-learn 'primevial' screaming in double quick time......



I recall having one such TABT jab at Weeton which just about laid me flat out, I seem to recall that you had these on a Friday and so were fully recovered by Mondayhmm

As for the cautizone thingies had three each shoulder to try to unfreeze a frozen shoulder, never did workhmm

Write a few letters to the MOD John, that usually makes the steam pour forth from your earholes, which, properly directed will unfreze your shoulder.

TABT jab used to knock me out for about three days every time I had one. Eventually refused to take it. At one time I had a blood test for something and was told I had enough anti tetanus thingies in my blood to last a lifetime.

In '91 pror to Golf War1 we had to have six injection's one after the other. Was'nt until after when we checked our doc's we found they had'nt put two in our boook. They would'nt either but said it was nothing to worry about, inyears to come denials abounded about what they did or did not contain. Nobody still says they were Anthrax jab's.

I just hope one day that these baskets are brought to book, human guinea pigs, like Porton Down and The Grapple Tests, I'm sure servicemen/women were used as guinea pigs as they had no recourse of complaint against anyone! furious

Had the flu jab last Thursday and had my annual cholesterol today (3 phials), didn't feel a thing on either, so were the RAF Medics good darts players or whathmm

  Had to have penicillin jabs (5) while on Christmas Island John and the so called medic, an Army type, took great delight in insisting that it had to be given via the buttock  "Drop your trousers and lean over the bed" he said and proceeded to use me as a dartboard.  Sadistic bar steward.

  Beeza.

I have it written down here on the forum somewhere........at El Adem I had developed an infection in my right ear, I was being treated daily, but because of hot climate it was essential that I had penecillin injections, these were injected into the buttock (Boy how you can feel that lump for a few hours afterwards)
 
On one occasion  said medic asked me to lean forward on to the back of this wooden chair, he took aim and just as the needle went in I flinched, this bent the needle, the medic said that had never happened to him before, I said nor me!smile He then gave me another injection but this time slapped my ar$e firstaww

I just liked these kinky peoplebiggrin

On Monday my six monthly Pacemaker check revealed that mine has suddenly gone downhill rapidly. Must have a new one inserted. I asked what sort of timeframe and the Techo said "2 weeks". Sh*t! Instant action booked me into a heart clinic next Monday and today I had to have blood tests.
These have never really worried me. Today it took the nurse six jabs before she could find the vein!
She reckons that I must have been dehydrated.
