What a month

Hi all

Just thought I would say hi , had an awful month ,

Admitted to hospital weeks ago with bladder stone and urine retention had emergency surgery and was given vitamin k which really messed with my warfarin .

I was discharged and began to feel unwell I put it down to under Anticoagulation , however six days later I was found unconscious in the bathroom by my girlfriend I was rushed straight to resuscitation at my local a+e diagnosed with severe urosepsis and multi organ failure I was immediately placed on life support ventilator , haemodialyss etc etc my liver and kidneys began to fail and I I remained this way for two weeks , I was given a 10% chance of survival . Cardiac arrest on days four and five . Thankfully I made it and although I feel better i am struggling big time I once again was given vitamin k now my INR won't move even on 10mg on warfarin, fatigue has kicked in , kidneys not recovered fully blood work still up the creek ,

Feel this is going to be a big uphill battle

Hope you are all doing ok
