I am 26 and live in Glasgow in the UK and I am a survivor of NF, better known as (the flesh eating bug). In 2005 I had an Emergency C-Section for the birth of my daughter Chloe, shortly after her birth I became increasingly unwell which was disgnosed as NF. I had many surgeries to remove all the effected area in my lower abdomen which left over an 18 inch open wound, I was attached to a vac machine for a while and spent much time seperated from my new born daughter. Finally 18 months later after daily dressings and many antibiotics, hospital visits, operations etc my wound finally healed but my nightmare was not over! I have been left mentally unwell with depression and anxiety caused by the trauma I have been through with NF and my life is still a daily struggle. I recently gave birth to my second daughter Kayla in June 2008. Kayla was a planned C-Section which was far from straight forward as previous complecations from NF and surgery left no option but a vertical C-Section incision. I am fighting my legal case still but it is a long drawn out process but I am determind to stay stong and battle to the end in the hope my experience can be a learning tool for authorities in the UK and around the World. My Immune system is still weak and we are now 3 years on, I constantly catch cold's, flu and viruses. I was recently hospitalised with Meningitis and see that things have not changed in the terms of clenliness and isolation of patients with infection as I am MRSA positive (airborn) and was mixed freely with other patients etc. I have many other experiences which I could share but I would be here all day, but if we all stick together possibly we could make a difference if not in this generation but for our children and families in the future.
