    I had my temp sneak up to 39.5C and it was called pre-septic twice within two weeks. It all happened very fast. Never had that issue until my 32nd year post and it was bladder related.

    You're active and healthy so I doubt sepsis is a risk here .. Until decades from now when your body and it's immune system are worn down from complications of paralysis.

    It's just the scar ... And weakened skin left behind which will always be at risk now, but it's already been 11 days so damage done.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

      Great thread on REDDIT about wound healing (though normal people are participating but wound nurses are responding!)

        Um, not so sure you need years of wear for sepsis to happen, just an unfortunately set of circumstances, though I'm sure being worn down doesn't help. Mine happened really quickly, bad UTI so they went ahead and got my cath changed, well it bled and pretty sure that's where it turned into sepsis because immediately after I felt awful, dizzy and nauseous, got discharged home, an hour later I went back. Told to go home and sleep it off and it was probably just the meds, well I vomited for the next day with crazy spasms and went back where they realized it had tuned into sepsis. They were a lot quicker the second time I went back when they saw my blood pressure was crazy low (for me).

        So Rach, not to scare you but you'd probably feel awful and have other symptoms if it was septic. Not that you should wait too long to be seen either but you'll probably be fine if you feel decent, then again everyone is different.
