Can people survive after multiple organ failure? My son is now in CCU with this after acute pancreatitis. his kidney and liver are not working.
Can people survive after multiple organ failure? - ICUsteps
That is more complex - I was very active family person - 2 days before ICU - I was skiing with them. I had avian flu, double pneumonia - which rapidly became sepsis etc etc.
When I woke from coma, I was told I had a leukaemia of the immune system. This minute, I have embarked on a trial at The Christie.
If it weren’t for Covid 19, at present I would be leading a normal life. I am fit & well despite what I have described.
My partner did. Complete organ failure. How I don’t know but the staff in ICU do their utmost and work so hard. Sean now has to take beta blockers for his heart. Suffers post sepsis syndrome but he survived. I know many people have. Prayers and healing went for your son at this worrying time. The staff as I said are simply the best. X
Yes my healthy, fit, non smoking, brothers lungs and kidneys failed due to sepsis from flu. He is now,2 years on, well. Remain hopeful is the best advice we were given. He took a month to start to come round from an induced coma. It’s very hard but keep talking to your son as normal. He may not be able to respond yet but it will reassure him to know you are there.
Yes ,Zhanna1963. I was 12 days in induced coma, my family were told 50/50 &that I may not be the sister that they once had, all my organs were failing, I remained a further 10 weeks in hospital, I came out of it all totally unscathed, & I have never looked back, my humble advice to you Zhanna1963 , try to remain positive as sometimes things turn out so much better than what you think they will, It all happened to me 1 year ago,& one doctor said to me 'you are a walking miracle" but please look after your own health Zhanna1963 as believe me Miracles do happen..You & your son are in my thoughts & prayers..With love & may God. bless you both always...xx
Try hard not too worry too much Zhanna1963, your lovely son has age on his part which is a massive bonus & he is in the best place receiving 1st class treatment, keep looking on the bright side& keep your spirits up, as I said Zhanna1963, I myself am living proof that Miricles Do Happen... With much love, & may God be with you both...xxxx
I did, i had multiple organ failure and 18 months on I am rebuilding my life. Docs gave me 20% survival. Now same odds as any normal person. My liver failed my kidneys stopped completely, my lungs on support and had sepsis. 1 month was out in a wheelchair, 1 year no stick, 16 months back to work. 🙏🏻
