I am a 27 year old female and have never been in the hospital a day in my life until I became pregnant. Around the 7th month of my pregnancy my health started to go down hill. The doctors did not seem to worried as my blood pressure never really increased, however, I displayed all other signs of toxemia. I was a week overdue and when I finally did go into labor, that is when the problems really got going. I am not going to go into great detail as it was just horrific, but long story short, I developed an uterine infection, and it rapidly spread everywhere. After 31 hours of labor, my son was born in full respiratory failure and I was down for the count with a temp almost 105 degrees. I was treated with IV anti bio-tics. My son was in the NICU for 8 days. We actually did recover and all seemed well. 6 weeks after he was born, I got a stomach ache and a little fever. The pain moved over to the RLQ. I went to the doctor and he suspected my appendix was going bad. I was sent to the hospital and received a CT. The results were strange as the whole area looked inflamed. Surgury was performed almost 12 hours after I went in and they found that my appendix was fine, but my colon was inflamed and infected. They took the appendix anyway and started me on a broad spectrum anti biotic. I got worse before I got better and during my recovery I got very little information about my condition "typhlitis" . I guess it is most commonly seen in patience with Auto Immune problems like cancer or leukemia or even AIDS. They did every test in the world blood work wise and they couldn't find anything wrong. Therefore they acted very aloof like I had a hang nail or something and it was like pulling teeth to find out any answers. So, I was wondering if there is anyone out there with a similar situation, or someone that could possibly help ease my mind. I really need the mental help as I am suffering from anxiety because I think that I am going to get that sick again, or there is something really wrong with me and they just weren't looking or just didn't/don't care. Needless to say, it was a horrible experience that I never want to go through again. Please help.
