Hi, I'm 23 years old. I've recently suffered with sepsis and fell into a coma as I couldn't breathe on my own. I had to have a central line in and I remember things. It's such a scary thing. I'm struggling to come to terms with it. It all started on the 29th of December I had my appendix out. 2 weeks after I was back in hospital with a collection of infection, got sent home with the impression I was okay and that the infected had cleared, after a few days I had to go back I was so poorly. I had to have surgery as they thought it was my ovaries that were the problem. They said it would be key hole and I wouldn't have much of a scar, but things weren't what they thought. They found puss all over my organs and in my pelvis and found I had sepsis. I had all abominable organs taken out and cleaned. I have a good 8inch scar down my belly. I also have 2 scars where my drains are. I never thought I'd be affected by my appearance when coming to something like this but I hate it. I just want to know how other people felt during there time in icu and if they had crazy dreams and crazy thoughts. I was so close to death and I could feel it, has anyone else felt this way??
