Sepsis. A tragic loss. on 20:41 - Sep 13 with 1210 viewsHighjack

A mate died of this about two years ago. Similar story. He was driving home from work and was found flat on his back in agony on the side of the road, he’d managed to get out of the car. The guy who found him took him to A+E, but the wait was massive and he was stubborn and went home. Next morning he was dead.

All happened in about 12 hours.

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

I was deeply moved by this story plus amazed at the stat that it kills more people in Britain than breast, bowel and prostate cancer!!
This young lady who died has an amazing mother who is raising awareness.

RIP

I read it as well this morning and it is a truly harrowing and frightening account of this killer infection. RIP indeed Rachel.

Last time I was in Morriston was about 6 months ago and there were plenty of Sepsis awareness posters on the walls.Hopefully Rachel's Mum's campaign for the Sepsis 6 Pathway fast-tracking system can be introduced in a timely fashion.

I had sepsis two years ago. Rigors (shaking), blue lips, white fingers, talking shit (more than usual) and very hot.

Any symptoms similar to that, get it checked out.

If I hadn't gone to A & E so quickly (Thank you Mrs for nagging me), it would have been really bad. 3 days in hospital and completely recovered. Fighting fit now.

Terrible condition that's avoided if caught early.

As you know I wrote on here last November I almost bit the bullet with this one. My colon tumour perforated blowing open a hole in my intestine. My idiot doctor still tried treating me for irritable bowel syndrome when I was in agony in her office. Had I taken her advice and taken the tablets and tried to sleep it off I would have been dead....no doubt about it.

Instead I made a second phone call to a helpline who told me the score and get to A and E as soon as possible.
Luckily,my son drove me to the big one in Cardiff. It felt like many knives in my stomach at the time, I was outside the doors writhing in agony for what seemed an eternity,waiting to be seen.

Anyway,skillful eight hour surgery and a hospital stay of 12 days with tons of intra veinous anti biotics did the trick...and saved my life.


Beware of the signs people, it could happen to anyone with the slightest of accidents.

Extremely nasty and my best wishes to all affected.

It is going to become a greater problem with increasing antimicrobial resistance. Simple infections may become untreatable leading to sepsis and slower septicaemia .

Did you call NHS Direct or 111? They now ask every caller with any symptoms a series sepsis questions.

No.

In my case I called the MacMillan helpline. Luckily, they seem to have quite a few patients this has happened to so they knew the signs.

But my doctor also had the same medical history notes on her screen and should have been alerted to this.

I just wonder how many of those 25,000 uk deaths p a could have been avoided by quick thinking GPs.

Rapid diagnosis is a big problem. We, as in my Department, have projects on both diagnostics and enhanced treatments. A long way to go and I don’t know much of the detail, but is an area increasingly recognised as needing urgent support

I'm currently recovering from Sepsis and Necrotzing Fasciitis. In April went in for a standard Vasectomy , within a few days swelling was abnormal and felt very unwell , flu like with sweats. Couldn't see or walk or walk when i woke up to go to the toilet. Taken into hospital and then taken into emergency surgery , they had to call in a top surgeon to Morriston hospital , he was the guy who saved Hartsons life. Next thing i know im waking up in intensive care all wired up , family around me unable to move. Turns out i had been in a coma for 10 days , sepsis had run through my body shutting every organ down , they also had to remove my scrotum and surrounding skin as it had all died to the NF. Had to learn to walk again , feed myself again. Even while in ITU they didn't think i would make it due to kidney failure and lung failure. They called my parents down from Scotland to prepare for the worse then i eventually woke up. Surgeon said he doesnt know how I'm alive but i am bit of a miracle. Spent the next few months recovering at home with , walking on a stick atm but I'm back in work part time and managing to get down the Swans 😂. Horrible scars but at least I'm alive and can see my daughter grow up. It's crazy how quickly it comes on and the effects are devastating. Luckily for me they found the bacteria and could match the right intravenous antibiotics. Thats me and the wife both have it and we are both luckily alive , hear so many horrendous stories of those who dont make it.

Yea i am not doing too bad all things considering. The surgeon was initially going to replace my skin via skin grafts which would mean more surgery and more time in hospital . He decided to leave my wounds open and hope the skin and tissue and fat that was removed kind of grows back. I'm now in a position where my skin has done exactly that to a point , its a bit of a mess but its "healed" and i can carry on with my life. My legs have taken a big hit as such and walking can be tough and i get fatigued easily. However I'm lucky to have not lost any limbs which is common , i require no further treatment which I'm thankful for. Really shouldn't be here so i have to make the most of it.

Hang in there Dude you’ve got a great attitude,our daughter (who’s got a rare syndrome anyway) had it three years ago at the age of 31 and still hasn’t recovered and is unlikely to either.
They’ve said that the poison travelling around her body in the blood stream touched her brain and has brought on a dementia type illness.

Saying that she only weighs 4 stone now and went down to 2 stone when she was in ICU and the experts are utterly staggered as to how she survived it.
