... home on oxygen, 24/7. I was very weak and tired. I thought I was getting better. Some days I am almost 'well', other days to get out of bed exhausts me. I do have some problems with memory and staying focused. I have terrible headaches and body pains. I want to be me again so bad. I would love for someone to share some info that I might be able to change and get better sooner.Also, I get scared easy now, and I can't sleep at nights. Thank you in advance
Hi. I just saw your question. I had sepsis due to Strep A. Afterwards I developed pneumonia. I was on ventilator for 7 days. I had delusions while in icu. They were horrible. Had lung surgery to correct damage due to strep. All in all I was in hospital 2 months. Had physical therapy to learn to walk again. I am 57 yrs old. Its been just over a year anniversary. I still have problems with memory, muscle pain, fatigue and nightmares. I have gone to therapy. The dr treats it as ptsd. I get Buspar for anxiety. I hope things have improved for you. It is going to take years to get back. I still dont think we will be same as before sepsis. That was an enormous trauma.
