Question H1N1 Adult survivor of ECMO

I just passed my 1 year mark of when I went to the hospital and was there for almost 3 months. I was put into a coma and paralized for 6 weeks in order to put me on life support in order to heal my body.

I've been told that 6 months to a year will let me know how my body will be for the rest of my life. March 20 of last year is when I got to come home so i'm thinking i'm pretty close to what I will be. I'm a 49yr female and have been left with neropathy, PTSD and loss of some of my mobility.

Are there any other adult survivors out there? I would love to compare some of the side effects that we have been left with.

Thank you all, I look forward to hearing from you
