My daughter fell ill on 29th Aug this yr. She had influenza A and from that contracted viral pneumonia. She was operated on and placed in an ECMO machine as her lungs no longer worked. She was placed in an induced coma and ventilated. Was given dialysis over the entire time she was in ICU. She had so may problems and with a secondary pneumonia and the difficulty in keeping her vitals level, she flatlined twice. She was on ECMO for 44 days. The docs told us she had a very small chance of survival. But she is now in a normal ward awaiting rehab. She doesn't have alot of pain. The pain she does have is mainly in her feet. The top of her left foot is the worst. Has anyone else had that? She said it is like a burning ache.
