My sepsis started September 2017 due to kidney infections and stones that blocked my kidneys. (Sepsis and Kidney Stones) It was severe, injuring my heart and kidneys. I had it again for same reason in October 2017, and ended up on step down from ICU in potential life threatening condition. I had to go to rehab, as I had it again in April 2018.
In July 2018, I ended up in critical care and at rehab in September 2018 and December 2018. Each time, it was severe sepsis and life threatening. I still have some issues due to post sepsis.
Update as of March 15, 2020:
I had spinal surgery in January 2020. I ended up in rehab for three weeks. Somewhere along the line, my sister and I both got human metapheumonia virus. (Sepsis and Viral Infections) Mine came on fast, and within a few days I went into septic shock without warning or signs that I could pinpoint. My temperature was 105 and I was delirious. I could not get up or walk. I was taken to the nearest hospital by ambulance where my blood pressure kept dropping, my temperature stayed high, and I experienced mental confusion. My oxygen was in the 0s, and I was put on a BiPap machine. I had a PICC line put in my carotid artery in my neck, and they scanned my body, looking for a point of infection. They did a lumbar puncture.
I was in the ICU for around five days, then I went to the regular unit for another four or five days. They sent me home, but I am weak, and I feel horrible and scared. I have survived, but I experienced sepsis so easily. This is like my seventh or eighth time, and the most severe in the last three years.
