Some of you may remember from my previous posts that I was admitted to hospital one week after ufe with symptoms of infection. The official diagnosis was sepsis. Following my discharge from hospital and two courses of antibiotics, I felt much better and thought I had recovered more or less fully. However, about 10 days ago the vaginal discharge I've had since the operation turned foul-smelling and I developed low-grade fever. A few days later my temperature shot up to over 39 C and I went to A&E. I was admitted to the ward and given fluids and IV antibiotics. The diagnosis was once again sepsis.
I'm now out of hospital on oral antibiotics but I still have fever, smelly discharge and malaise. I'm totally baffled why I've had two episodes of sepsis when other women recover from ufe in a matter of weeks. I asked the consultant who said it is because my fibroid was large (10cm), however from what I've read in the relevant literature it is not confirmed that bigger fibroids increase the risk of infection.
Anyone here had similar issues at all?
