Suggest treatment for UTI - Online Doctor Chats
tampon was left in for an indeterminate amount of days (possibly 60-90days).When it w as removed I became extremely ill with fever and chills, fatigue, vomiting, confusion, eyes discharging,etc.After 4 or 5 days I seemed to be recovering but I got sick again about a week later, and it was another 5 days extremely ill.I seem to be recovering again but I'm not sure I trust the recovery. It has been approx. 3-4 weeks since I discovered the tampon.
I am sorry to learn about unfortunate turn of events for you
Are you on any antibiotics for the infection right now?
the second time I got sick was different than the first. Fever, chills, fatigue and the top of both pelvic bones are very painful. No antibiotics, allergic to most
You will most definitely need a full course of antibiotics
you have had a tampon sitting for 60 to 90 days, that is going to cause serious infections
if untreated with good antibiotics, then your life will be in danger
Prior to getting sick my lymph nodes became extremely swollen. the second sickness also bad joint pain.
The symptoms may not always be the same, they may change
I would urge you to consult your doctor at the earliest and get a blood culture and sensitivity done
Symptoms of???? I have no doctor
symptoms of infection
If you have no doctor, you will need to find one
You probably need admission in a hospital
If infections are not treated, they spread in the blood and will cause sepsis
sepsis is XXXXXXX and can even be fatal
I was hoping to avoid hospital, no chance of that i guess.
so you need to either go to an ER or find a doctor immediately
Okay doc I hope I can find something. Thanks for your help
I am sorry, but there is no way you can avoid hospital
with your history, I would not want to take the risk of treating as an out patient
