Does anyone have any experience with septic shock recovery. I became septic from a kidney stone blockage and was rushed to emergency. My blood pressure was extremely low, I was in 80% renal failure and they were worried about my heart being strong enough for surgery. I was in ICU and on a vent for 7 days. After I woke up they kept me for 5 more days. This was almost 6 months ago. I am 57 years old.
It took a couple of months to get enough strength and stamina to do somewhat normal things. I still have lingering effects though. My strength and stamina are still way behind from when I got sick, if I have an active day I pay for it the next. I have tingling in my hands, face and scalp. I have muscle and joint aches. I started losing hair 2 or 3 months ago. I swear my memory is affected. My neck is very stiff and somewhat immobile.
I have gone to my family doctor and Urologist for check ups but they are unable to help with these symptoms or direct me to someone else. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions? I am so frustrated. I was in pretty good shape for my age before this. I went into the hospital 57 and woke up 87.
