Food Poisoning.

Hi

I am not having much look.

Week before last got a very nasty type of food poisoning.

Self medication, fluids, Imodium etc did not work and lost so much fluid and electrolytes that I ended up in Intensive Care for 10 days with kidney failure.

The situation was complicated as I could not take my heart medication as my kidneys were not working.

I was discharged home last night direct from ICU as there were no Side Rooms available in local hospitals and I am still infectious and could not go on a normal ward.

I am still infectious, that is the nature of the beast, but getting better.

Thanks for those who have asked after me.

Eaten a dodgy curry or something out of date?

Hi

Some types of food poisoning are contagious, easily checked online.

The particular strain I got can even survive on surfaces for up to 2 weeks.

ICU Beds are in great demand, so bed blocking is not an option.

Re: Food Poisoning.

I feel for you Swimfeeders.

Your experiences remind me of a blast from the past.

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

Hi

Nope Judd.

No takeaways or out of date stuff at all, something of a mystery.

Flippy neck Swimmy, you are going though it aren't you? I can't remember the last time I had a real dose of food poisoning.

Re: Food Poisoning.

Wish you well, Swimmy. I have been in that situation. My illness was called infectious gastroenteritis and I was moved to first a side room with toilet, out of the way of A&E patients, then into my own room in AAU. Discharged after much needed antibiotics given and kicked in. A shame I then caught a rotten cold which spoilt the weekend away in Newquay I was then went on. I should have stayed in for one more night for a scan as they had suggested, and foregone the holiday.
