Has anyone any idea how long someone will be sedated when having this, he's been sedated 3 days and they are decreasing sedation slowly?
Husband has bacterial meningitis and sedate... - Meningitis Now
My husband was in induced coma for 8 days and in hospital 7 weeks. He was just released and will be an outpatient for 7 weeks. He had pneumococcal bacterial meningitis and sepsis 😭😭😭. Very terrifying my thoughts are with you. My husband came out of sedation when his body was ready. It needs to heal. Message me if you want to connect. Its nice to have support from other spouses in similar situations
Sorry to hear! I cannot even imagine how you are feeling...
I had VM in September 2019 and even though I wasn't sedated by the doctors, my body slept for 5 straight days in the hospital. I was released and continued to only sleep for weeks at home. I know VM is much milder than other meningitis but it just shows how dangerous these diseases are, if with Viral I was sleeping so much.
Hang in there! I have found a lot of support in this website and from Meningitis Now..
