Anyone had disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC)?
@cb772, are you referring to disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC)? Did you start having issues with DIC after back surgery?
Jump to this post
Apparently my DIC started almost immediately after my 3rd back surgery. I don't remember the actual onset of symptoms. I remember getting a wheelchair to go into surgery & waking up some time later with a bloody nose. I was in ICU but didn't know I was there. I have very few memories of a great part of 2007. I never received P.T. which is an absolute necessity after back surgery. I was further struck down by MRSA and 2 other types of staph infections leaving me incapacitated from April till December, 2007. My health has gone downhill ever since. Have you experienced DIC and, if so, have you had long lasting health symptoms?
