Hi All, has anyone else who survived Sepsis had relapses, where you get an infection then end up in A & E on a drip of Antibiotics & fluids, or is it just me? My story :- I am a survivor of sepsis which was caused through not being able to get a dentist while on a wk-end away on the IOW last October, when I did see one 2 days later, he gave me such strong antibiotics that it turned into sepsis, my body could not cope with the infection, luckily for me I have a sister who is a nurse, (we stopped of at her house on the way back home) she took one look at me and took me to Bournemouth A&E, I was immediately put on a drip of antibiotics & fluids, I was transferred to Poole hospital to carry on my treatment and have the offending tooth out, I was in Hospital for 5 days, a year later I am still suffering, I had an UTI in April, I was in hospital within 8 hours of feeling ill, Just a few days ago I had a throat infection, I was in hospital again within 8 hours! I found this experience was hard, all they wanted to look at was my throat, they were not listening when I said I was post sepsis, they had never heard of it, yet it is in my medical notes!! Each time I get an infection my heart goes into tachycardia, 184 beats a Minuit, (I get all they symptoms of SIRS), I can not slow it down with breathing techniques, now that is scary!! I went to my Doctor's yesterday to go through my results from my recent admission to A & E, she said I had a throat infection, to say I was stunned was an understatement, I had all the symptoms of SIRS, (Systemic inflammatory response syndrome)! I have written to PALS to get my blood test results as I know I would have had sepsis markers! I feel that no-one in the medical profession understands post sepsis syndrome and I am fighting against the flow of a river of ignorance!! Am I the only one who feels this way? Sorry to go on, I would love to hear from anyone else who is or has had the same experience!! Love this site, Glad to be still here and god bless those who lost there fight!!
