Can bacteremia remain in the bloodstream for quite a while until one day the immune system becomes weaker and then cause sepsis?
Bacteria do not remain dormant in blood. However, we all get transient invasion of blood with bacteria from activities like brushing teeth and having bowel movement. In a person with weak immune system, such, otherwise benign, bacteremias can cause sepsis.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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, if you have sex. ...Read more
If sepsis is a bacteria in the bloodstream can it happen when you have a blood transfusion or kidney removal or how does sepsis get in the blood?
See below: Bacterial sepsis from transfusion is a recognized complication from transfusions and tends to occur from transfusion of platelets or less commonly from red cell transfusion. It is more likely to happen from platelets as they are stored at room temperature where the bacteria can multiply. It is a serious reaction but luckily is uncommon in most centers. It certainly does not imply negligence. ...Read more

I had sepsis in july do to salmonella poisoning in my blood stream. Lately I have had really dark urine side n back pain. Could this be from sepsis?

Immunity problems: Some immune deficiencies and autoimmune disorders don't fit well with named syndromes. Perhaps there is a name for yours, but not necessarily.

Sepsis: Very variable. Depends upon the organism producing the sepsis, the therapy chosen and its timing and many other factors. Have seen patients die within hours of admission to hospital and others who linger for lengthy time periods. ...Read more

Left untreated death can occur in days if not hours as the body shuts down and organs fail. Hope that helps. ...Read more
How long does it take for your body to fully recover after having sepsis, and is there any long term complications to worry about?
It's highly variable: It depends on how severe the course was and what organs were affected. If you had multiple organ insults like kidney failure, heart failure, it can take a long time to recover. The recovery may not be complete. Some are left with residual heart or kidney damage. Others recover completely with no long term effects. Too variable to say. ...Read more

How long does it take for a yeast infection turn into sepsis? Or can it do that has there been any cases before? I have one for bout 7 months now
Depends...: On a couple of things. First, what type of infection - some resolve quickly with treatment, others may take longer? Second, how many organ systems were impacted by the infection - was there breathing failure, kidney failure, confusion, etc? Also, and probably most important - what was the patient's baseline health and age? Young, healthy people can do better, but can still die from sepsis. ...Read more

Probably months: Those are serious conditions and it would probably take several months to recover fully. At your young age of 20 recovery would be faster than in someone older. You will have to be patient with yourself and follow your doctors' recommendations. Recovery also depends upon your underlying medical condition. If you were healthy before developing these infections then recovery could be quicker. ...Read more
It depends: It depends on what you mean by "recovery." the actual acute illness may take anywhere from 3-10 days to resolve on average, but can also involve ICU stays for a month or more (depending on setbacks). Even after leaving the icu, a patient will be very weak and deconditioned, and may need assistance to gain strength and ability to function independently again. That can take months of rehab. ...Read more
