Fever during childbirth and placenta "inflamed" but no culture growth, is that def chorioamnionitis? If yes, could mild case lead to infertility?

Could I have picked up the bacteria causing my sepsis over a year ago? Kidney stone last week, its stuck, admitted after second er visit for fever,
Probably longer: The bacteria that cause urinary tract infection -- with or without sepsis, kidney stone, etc -- are not caught from outside.

You'll probably never know for sure, and it probably doesn't matter. ...Read more

My father is just about recovering from a severe sepsis infection that included septic shock. Still has low grade fever. How long does recovery take?

Some recover fully, some take weeks, some never quite recover organ function and cardiac, pulmonary, brain and kidney function may be impaired afterwards. If he is still with fever days/weeks into therapy, i would make sure he has been evaluated for endocarditis with blood cultures and an echo. ...Read more
Cold&mild fever.Took Tylenol,4 hours later,I would not stop sweating.BP dropped really low idk ifmachine was false err from panic.Sepsis?BPnorm now.28
Not sepsis: Often times the presence of sweating is the sign of the fever "breaking". BP changes for various reasons but panic will usually cause increase in blood pressure.
