Survivor

I contracted MSSA (methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus) near Father’s Day of 21. The infection led to sepsis. (Sepsis and Bacterial Infections) I was in the hospital due to the MSSA infecting the muscles at the L 1 and L 2 lumbar. I was in cefazolin for 8 weeks through a PICC line. Well obviously I made it so far. But I’m experiencing chest pains while exercising or hiking where my heart rate will escalate. Just wonder if anyone other than me has experienced this.
