No: Women do get bladder infections more often than men do. The tube that leads the urine from the ladder to the outside is shorter in women than in men and most UTI's in women are believed to be ascending from the outside in. There is no reason to believe that because you had a prior bout of sepsis you are at higher risk for future bladder infections. ...Read more

I don't have a spleen, what are my chances for getting systemic sepsis?

Higher but still low: There is no published data on rates of sepsis or septic shock in patients with splenectomies (or who are congenitally apslenic, or functionally asplenic from other causes); your risk is higher due to susceptibility to encapsulated organisms. Hopefully, if it was a planned splenectomy you had a pneumonia vaccine prior to your surgery. The vaccine is less useful (or even useless) afterwards. ...Read more

I had sepsis 2 years ago following surgery. I don't think organs were damaged. Does sepsis stay in your body forever? Should I be on gaurd?

See below: If no organs were damaged due to the sepsis, it should not leave a lasting problem. You should be on the watch for the circumstances that led to sepsis. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

So it is hard to say exactly how long but why would you not want to treat it? Treatment is usually antibiotics, IV fluids etc supportive care, nothing fancy or controversial. ...Read more
