Hi my name is Cath. Last year I was very ill due to a blood clot which turned septic. I was given 6 weeks of intravenous antibiotics. My whole body bloated out with fluid. 3weeks on, one day I was particularly breathless until I felt like I was going to pass out. Very luckily for me a nurse was beside me. I came round 5 days later in ICU on a ventilator. I had suffered heart failure, I am now home but still can't get proper answers as to why or how my heart stopped exactly !!!. Has anyone else ever heard of a situation like this. The more I think about this , over a year on, the more confused I get. I was given CPR, but needed the defibrillator to restart my heart. It stopped 2 weeks later but CPR on its own worked this time. I really feel like I was fobbed off at times. Thank you for reading this. xx
