Many Earth Bound Angels will not only suffer the loss of limbs, major
organ damage including, brain, kidney, skin, but also blindness, deafness, have
to give up attending school, quit college or receive less of an education,
feel alienation form society and they often experience some or all of these
life changes. The damage of meningitis is life long.
These symptoms should be discussed with your doctor during follow-up
medical consultations. It is believed the more stress-free the recovery period is, the sooner the sufferer
will improve. Patients shouldn’t rush themselves, but rather listen to what their body
is telling them and not attempt too much too soon.
The most serious complications
One of the most common complications is deafness , which affects around one
in ten people, and can either be temporary or permanent. Blindness is also
a possible complication
Anyone who has had bacterial or viral meningitis should have a hearing test –
this is especially important for young children where hearing loss is often more
difficult to detect. Children’s hearing tests are arranged through your GP or
through your local hospital’s ear, Nose and Throat Department.
During the illness, septicemia (blood poisoning) can occur, and in extreme
cases can result in a diminished blood supply to the feet, toes, hands and
fingers. This may result in the need for skins grafts or even amputation.
