When I woke up I had no idea where I was and why. I was on a ventilator so was unable to ask any questions. I was also paralized, which I learned later on was chemically produced. I was on a feeding tube and didn't understand why I couldn't eat. But when I woke up everyone around me knew what happened to me but me. I would search peoples eyes hoping they could tell that I wanted to know why I was where ever I was. I was supposed to go to Hawaii but figured I didn't make it there. I figured I was in a hospital somewhere but had no idea why. I tried to lift my head to see if I had legs or arms but could not lift head high enough to tell. I thought maybe I was in a car accident. Anyone experience something like this?
Yeah I had a brain infection they think it was from the mennigtis vaccine I received a week before then I started having seizures but that was from them not giving me my meds. I was like in this dream state and no one told me anything. It was the worse expericane I have ever had and the staff was so rude.
Yes I did. On March 28,2013 I had gastric bypass surgery. On April 1, 2013 I returned to the hospital where I had emergency surgery due to a blood clot and blockage. Then I developed sepsis. It led to respiratory failure and kidney failure. I was in a drug induced coma in the ICU for a month. I had no idea what had happened to me or why. I experienced delusions and confusion. It was frightening.
Then I spent approximately two weeks in a extended care facility. Lastly I was transferred to a rehabilitation hospital where I spent an additional ten days. My recovery has been slow. I have a lot of weakness as well as cognitive problems but luckily no permanent organ damage. It's been almost seven months since my first surgery. I hopeful that things will continue to improve.
