I believe I was intubated for 57 days and then remained on a trachy for another 2-3 weeks. This forum is full of people who have defied the odds. Don’t despair - I hope everything improves for you soon.

I went into 2 grade 3 Comas with Sepsis, pneumonia, Mrsa and kidney failure. I was given a 1-2% survival rate. I’ve now been home for 4 months. Never give up hope x
