Hi there y'all. I won't go into all I went through before I ended up with septic shock (that's all in my first post).
Suffice it to say I had an indwelling catheter that led to a urine infection that ended up with me going into septic shock (I run at 120 systolic and it dropped to 60). I had to go to hdu for noradrenaline as no amount of IV fluids would increase it.
I was lucky not to get ARD, DIC or organ failure but did have a raised troponin without chest pain (which apparently means I could have died apparently).
I was in for around a week in total.
I get tired walking short distances.
My meralgia paresthetica (which is like sciatica) played up and I get it most of the day every day.
I feel spaced out most of the day.
I'm sleeping a lot.
Think I have PTSD.
Some days my mood drops for no reason and I cry for no reason. I'm more anxious than I used to be before, eg wrt catching a cold.
Now to my question, I would like to know now so that I'm "not surprised" if they occur.
Apart from recurrence of sepsis, what are other complications I should watch for?
Thanks in advance.
Lots of love and well wishes to y'all xx
