Oprezno sa žuljevima, može doći do fatalnih posljedica!

39

Vjerojatno smo nebrojeno puta zadobili rane na stražnjoj strani stopala, koje su se pojavile nakon nošenja tvrdih cipela. Žuljevima, međutim, ne pridajemo veliku pažnju – kako dođu, tako prođu. No slučaj manekenke Gemme Downey poljuljat će vaše uvjerenje.

Nakon oporavka britanska je manekenka podijelila svoju priču na društvenim mrežama kako bi upozorila javnost na moguće opasnosti koje donose žuljevi.

Njezine muke počele su nakon što joj se stvorio žulj od nošenja espadrila koje je kupila u second hand dućanu. Najprije joj se stvorila krvana rana, onda mjehur pa je odstranila tu rabljenu obuću koju je kupila i počela nositi nešto udobnije.

No rana se nije povlačila, već naprotiv – počela oticati. Gemma je osjećala nevjerojatnu bol od koje nije mogla ni hodati, a koja nije nalik boli koja nastaje od žuljeva.

Hey guys, so I’m finally back home to recover! It’s all been a bit of a shock as it happened so fast. This developed simply from every day shoes rubbing the backs of my ankles and breaking the skin. I’ve never had any issues like this before and I developed the first stages of sepsis and severe cellulitis. I’m just so grateful that I acted on things fast (despite being sent away from A&E initially and also just getting told to continue my antibiotics when I had to call an ambulance out tues morning when I started vomiting) things rapidly got worse and I felt horrific and that’s when I rushed to the doctors and an ambulance was called. My blood pressure was super low, heart rate sky high and I had a high temp. I can’t believe all that happened in the space of 24hrs. Lots of people will shrug thing off and play things down, but please be careful of this. Sepsis and cellulitis can result it amputation and can be fatal if left too long. I’m so glad I trusted my instinct and knew that how I was feeling wasn’t normal at all. I was then able to get treated immediately, but obviously still have a little way to go. At the moment I’m not sure what I’m going to do regarding work and jobs, as I was told by the consultant not to wear shoes with backs on for 3 months. So if you see me with flips flops in November, you’ll know why 😂 stay safe guys ❤️ happy to be back in the comfort of my own home, but extremely grateful for the NHS. #sepsis #cellulitis #infection #warning #treatment #NHS

Obratila se liječniku, no dobila je samo antibiotike protiv bolova, a žuljevi nisu zacjeljivali. Završilo se tako što se probudila s visokom temperaturom, bolovima, teškim disanjem i niskim tlakom, a u bolnici su joj potvrdili – dobila je sepsu!

Sreća u nesreći je bila ta što je došla na liječenje na vrijeme, kad je sepsa bila još u početnoj fazi tako da nije bilo potrebe za amputacijom noge. Gemma je upozorila pratitelje, posebice žene koje nose takve cipele, da budu oprezne i ne zanemaruju naizgled beznačajne ozljede kao što su žuljevi.
