Comment from: Ann, 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: August 17

I had none of the normal signs of sepsis. I did not feel bad, no temperature. Neighbors found me on the bedroom floor after not seeing me for 3 days. What a horrible experience! Since April 13th until now bladder infection and pneumonia still linger. That's after 3 weeks in hospital with intravenous antibiotics and 3 weeks in nursing home. I have taken 5 drugs since home and problem still lingers. Next lung CT scan is on 08/27. I have asked for blood culture to check if virus for sepsis is still in my system. I had blood poisoning in October 2017.
