Yes, it has long term impact. I had it 6 years ago, suffering from Chronic pain, fatigue, GI issues, infections, low blood pressure, studies have been done in a MI hosptials on the numerous long term related impact of this illness. Most doctors do not understand this, so do your research to locate one that is familiar with the impact you can expect. Roughly 60 percent of survivors had physical and mental impairments in the 8 year study that continued to persist. Good luck to you. You may also want to search on "sepsis survivors". Another study was done in Germany with the same results.
