  1. Thank you to everyone who came to our meet up in York today, with special thanks to Larry for making the journey t'north.
  2. Dave, welcome to the forum and to the survivors club. Bluntly, sepsis has made a good effort in trying to kill you and would have done so but for top ambulance people,antibiotics and your good health. If someone had met you late at night and kicked you about, strangled you, bruised you internally and poisoned you before leaving you I guess you'd feel dreadful for weeks after and this is what sepsis has done. Beating it early gives you a big chance of a full recovery although in the next few weeks you can feel exhausted and suffer pain. But as I said, it's understandable. Most folks make a full recovery and often its because they have listened to their body regarding tiredness and done no more than able to do. Keep positive and please share youe ongoing improvements.

  3. Hi LindzV, some sepsis survivors find that they suffer limb pain, especially in the legs post sepsis. More can be read about this by searching post sepsis syndrom on the main site. As you are pregnant I suggest you advise your GP to be certain it's not anything else. My wife had difficulty with her hands whilst pregnant so 'unusual' things can happen when pregnant, however I'm happy to say that within 5 days of giving birth her hands were perfect. Mark
  4. More people are affected by sepsis in the UK than 1st thought and consequently costing the NHS 'billions' more. http://www.itv.com/news/2017-02-20/uk-sepsis-trust-study-sepsis-costing-uk-15-6-bn-a-year/
  5. Good to hear about the parking. I've heard that there is a park and ride here for folks coming by train. Looking forward to meeting you
  6. No words can ever be good enough to give you at this time. If you need answers regarding sepsis and the cruel way it took your mum please call UK Sepsis Trust 0800 389 6255. At anytime please share your thoughts with the forum and I dearly hope that in doing so it will give you some comfort. Mark http://sepsistrust.org/support/bereaved-support/
  7. Hi Linda (so much better than Moz!) , I do hope you can make it and at least keep me company . Larry a medic from the Trust will also be there. Mark
  8. Please note that the support groups are for 'people affected by sepsis.' They are for survivors, bereaved, carers etc.
  9. I'm jumping the gun on this as it hasn't been officially announced; The York Group will be on 12th March 2017 12-14:00 at Monks Cross Shopping Centre. Please pencil in your diaries.
  10. http://journals.lww.com/ccmjournal/Abstract/2006/01000/The_effect_of_age_on_the_development_and_outcome.3.aspx Cited over 500x so should be good
  11. I'm going to do that David. What a great way to bring sepsis awareness to those on the frontline. Thanks for posting, Mark
  12. That's interesting Supertractorman. How did you get involved in the Patient Bank Programme? I see real benefits in this. Mark
  13. Pleased to read that Moz and Crossland are looking at joining the new York group. I live near enough to take part also
