Health update

a serious health scare

may 3rd,2022 I was admitted to the hospital due to issues related to diabetes – 5 days later I was sent home to complete 6 weeks of infusion therapy. The drug used was penicillin which I am extremely allergic to. This caused me to go into congestive heart failure and kidney renal failure. after 21 days in the hospital, I was sent home to begin the long road out of hell

what to look for

Signs and symptoms of penicillin allergy often occur within an hour after taking a drug. Less commonly, reactions can occur hours, days or weeks later.
Drug allergy symptoms may include:

  • Skin rash
  • Hives
  • Itching
  • Fever
  • Swelling
  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing
  • Runny nose
  • Itchy, watery eyes
