Thanks for the link....three weeks ago I was diagnosed with the symptoms of sepsis and was treated in hospital with a cocktail of IV and oral antibiotics..

Still don't feel right and I have had to have a kidney scan.

Look out for the symptoms and get help quickly.....my daughter rang 999 after I started to go into shock......high temperature, low blood pressure, low sats and high heart rate.
