Covid Adverse reaction?

After 3 Pfiezer Covid vaccines I was hospitalized with a pulmonary embolism. I was in the hospital for a week due to the embolism and then an additional 3 weeks due to a mistake made by a careless nurse. My total stay one month

Before my first shot I was complaining about shortness of breath as I was increasing my activity level, after each shot the shortness of breath became worse. That story here

My Pulmonary Embolism occured 24 hours after my third vacine. In the hospital I was told that an adverse drug reaction report had been filed. I have no receipt, reference number or documentation of any type to indicate that this indeed happened. I suspect they were just pandering to my concerns by telling me a report had been filed when none was filed.

1: I understand the value of vaccines. I am pro vaccines!
2: My family doctor, nephrologists and pulmonary specialist tell me to go ahead with the 4th dose of vaccine.
3: My FEAR based upon experience is that the 4th Covid shot will kill me.
2: I FEAR Doctors are reluctant to Report or diagnose vaccine reactions as this might make them look like vaccine deniers.
3: While hospitalized for a PE and DVT I was told a Vaccine Adverse Event Report was made but no evidence of that report exists despite a 30 page summary of my stay from the hospital at release.

A year went by and I was convinced that I needed another vaccine. When I stating my history of my reaction to Covid Vaccines the clinic refused to give me a 4th shot without a letter from a doctor.

2 Shortness of Breath

My goal after transplant was to run in the transplant Olympics in the 400 meter sprint. I did it in high school when it was the 440 yard dash and thought it would be a good goal for my 65th birthday. With that in mind I was always noting my distance walked and time, always trying to improve and recording the results.

When I got to being able to walk 3 or 4 km I started running short distances. With this I reported shortness of breath to my doctor, I did not have any endurance, a series of test, stress test, EKG, lung capacity all showed normal function and I should continue to run.

Before the first shot in the spring I was optimistic about my gardening and for the first time since my transplant I started bedding plants, lots of bedding plants, my garden is large and I had the energy to plant and tend the garden for the first time in years.

After the first shot I could now just walk around my 1km block when days perviouslay I could run half way and walk half way.

After the second shot I was out of breath after walking 3/4 of the way and the last quarter was a struggle. I remember trying to plant leeks and taking 5 at a time, planting them, then resting for 5 minutes, repeat. It took all day.

After the third shot I was hospitalized.

A year after I was released in 2021 I was working in my yard putting down small patio stones, a large 2 car walkway, it took all summer but it gave me allot of strenth to do that much exercise. My strengh was returning.

I am afraid to take another covid shot and be bumped back to where I was after the first and second shot.

3: Report on adverse reactions and you are a trouble maker. When I was in the hosptial in 2021 and you went to google scholar and googled “adverse pulmonary embolism covid reactions” you got 4 responses. Today if you do the same thing you get thousands of responses. Lacking research, combined with the general backlash to vaccines, and doctors taking a science high ground, anyone who thinks they are having a reaction is a hysterical. Understandable, maybe it was my destiny to have a PE with DVT that day and the vaccine was just a co-inky dinky.
