  • Please go back to A&E - this is the fastest way to get matters resolved. I was discharged too soon and had to go back to hospital after initial release from BM. Beds are needed but please, this is the fastest way to the overall best outcome. I’ll hope for the best for you.

  • On release from hospital I had regular night sweats where I had to change my pyjamas and bed sheets nightly. It wasn't a fever as such. If you suspect fever you he'd to see a doctor.

  • Yes, go back to hospital for a second opinion. He may still have active infection. I was on antibiotics for 12 weeks before infection was completely cleared.
