My sister was diagnosed with meningitis today after a long labor, then c-section, and she had severe head pain/migrane, then became aggressive and didn't remember her name, who we were, or where she was, she had a high fever. They started her on antibiotics within 24 hours of her symptoms. The fever went down, she now knows her name, birthday, where she is, knows her family and our names, and her appetite is ok, but she still can't answer some questions and is not quite herself. Her vision has become impaired, it is blury and she is seeing spots, etc. We are suppose to get more answers in the morning after an MRI to find out what type of meningitis she contracted/how it happened, it may have been via her epidural. We are uneducated about menigitis and scared for her, and her mental and vision impairment this has caused. Will it go away? Does anyone have any knowledge or advice to share? Thank you for reading this. We are beside ourselves.
