I have been home now for 4 weeks, after treatment for infective endocarditis and heart disease too. Once again, I have a serious UTI, which is what was suspected as a suspect when the endocarditis was found. All my meds have changed; I have been given blood thinners, and also Amlodipine which is giving me horrendous swollen ankles! I have taken 4 horse-sized tablets for the UTI but I know it is still here, I had a blood test today and my CRP has shifted from 2 to 6 today. was told by the hospital to call for help if I was unwell, but just am not sure what to do...have been a couple of times to emergency with mild chest pains, they did nothing, and now I have this UTI. Feeling very shaky and rather lost with it all. Sorry, sounds like I am moaning but after 7 weeks in hospital I feel I have lost confidence in my ability to be reasonable and sensible...feel a bit panicky. would like to know about others' experiences.
