I recently posted an article referring you to a short video on this subject. Last week my husband had sepsis again. We were away on holiday, he suddenly became very tired, went to sleep for 3 hours (most unusual during the day) I woke him up, his eyes were rolling up into his eyelids, his speech slurred, he was confused and floppy, very cold and shivering. I recognised the signs, his temperature was 37.5c. By the time I had located the nearest hospital, he couldn't walk unaided and his temp was 39.4c Being Sunday evening this cottage hospital did not have a lab open to check bloods, but our trusty "letter from the specialist haematology unit in Leeds" came to the rescue. We were transferred to the next hospital, where bloods were carried out, he was fast-tracked through A and E he was given a room on his own, with barrier nursing, four days later he was back to normal, came away with two oral antibiotics to take and tomorrow he head to Leeds for his IVIG infusion which hopefully will restore him.
He has recently been diagnosed with a cold abscess in his neck which necessitates surgery, the theory is that the sepsis could have come from that. The surgeon advised us that he has not come across a CLL patient with this condition, it is usually people with TB, I wondered if any other CLL patients have any experience??
