I am only out of hospital Wednesday so 4 days ago but ever since coming out I am experiencing constant head pressure all over along with ringing in right ear. Alongside my legs feel really heave once I lie with them up on couch. Can anyone help me on this is this all normal with recovery from Sepsis. I was lucky I wasn't on oxygen or anything in hospital. I had Uro Sepsis
I'm sorry to hear that you're having a difficult time at the moment. Importantly you're not on your own and lots of people undergo a long and often tricky recovery following sepsis. Recovery following sepsis is varied and will usually have some contributing factors. These can include our age, length of hospital stay, if an admission to Critical Care was required and our pre-existing health. Although varied, there are common themes to the problems that many people encounter during their recovery. These themes can include new physical, cognitive and emotional problems.
I think a starting point would be to have a discussion with your GP about the symptoms you're experiencing. Not just the physical but also the psychological and emotional ones. These are as important and sometimes require as much attention. Speaking with your gastroenterologist may also help. Some people find it helpful keeping a journal/diary. Here you can plan and prioritise your activities and rest, and also what you’ve achieved in the day/week/month, how your feeling and any symptoms you’re experiencing. It can also be a good way of measuring your progress over time and discussing it with your doctors.
It may also be helpful to speak with the support nurses at the UK Sepsis Trust. We can talk through your experience and hopefully provide you with some more specific information and guidance around fatigue management and sleep. If you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org then we can schedule a call at a convenient time.
Wishing you all the best, Oliver.
I need your help!
My name is Jack Taylor and I am the founder/director of Tailored Health. Having graduated from Loughborough University with a product design degree, I have spent years designing and developing a solution for such a silent killer known as Sepsis.
Clarity the all-in-one smart sepsis device, which offers a predictive solution to a silent killer. Clarity has the opportunity to provide users with the ability to take control of their own health when they need it. Through constant monitoring and advisory information. Allowing both the user and their loved ones to have confidence and knowledge of when to seek medical assistance. Helping you spot the warning signs of Sepsis and take action before a life-threatening infection shuts the body down.
I would be so grateful if you could help me on my journey in any means necessary. Whether it be sharing this link with friends and family or even donating through my crowdfunding website.
Together I hope we can bring innovative solutions to the forefront of medical science when predicting sepsis.
