Re: H1N1 Adult survivor of ECMO

Hi there i to was taken ill over christmas 2011 and was placed in a comma , I spent 3.5 weeks in the comma and 6 weeks in hospital .I had ECMO at Glenfield hospital in Leicester and came out ok from it . My lungs are very scarred from the swine flu and they have a reduced capacity now and i get out of puff when i do to much. The swine flu has left me with dammage to my nerves in my thighs so i have to take 2700mg of gabbapintin each day to ease the various feelings and pains i get in them . i now have PTSD and have started to take tablets to try and get me on a level ground .I would like to know if anyone else is having nerve problems and other side effects as i have been told we the survivers are writing the books on this as no one can give solid answers as to the impact and lenght it can have on the body .
