Dr. Alex George tells terrifying ordeal in detail when he nearly died of septic shock

Dr. Alex George talked about the terrifying experience in which he could have died of sepsis.

The former Love Island star, 30, shared a candid video on his YouTube channel where he went into detail about his “frightening” test.

The doctor, who worked on the front lines during the pandemic, admitted that he wasn’t sure he was going to make it right now.

Alex also explained that it was not something he had talked about much earlier, but he felt it was important to turn to and hoped to give viewers suggestions on how to look for sepsis.

He went on to reveal that his experience changed his life and even contributed to his decision to go to Love Island.



Alex George deepened his appalling sepsis experience

The experience took place in 2017 and Alex started to feel a little strange after getting on a bicycle.

In addition to noticing that he was feeling a little tired, he started running a fever and went home after work.

Later that evening, he realized he had a very high heart rate and decided to move to the hospital.



The reality star spent a few days in the hospital but it took more than a month to fully recover

Having struggled to even fill out the forms in the hospital, Alex revealed that he had been run over by doctors for blood tests.

“It was very scary, but I was rushed to a cubicle where I was immediately seen by one of the senior doctors there,” he said.

He was then treated with a broad spectrum of antibiotics and had a full examination while trying to determine the infection.

He added: “I think what really scared me at the time was A, I was alone, B, what happened quickly and also the fact that it took me a long time to respond.”



The doctor worked on the front line of the NHS

Alex continued to praise the NHS workers who helped him do it as he started to recover thanks to antibiotics.

In the end he spent a few days in the hospital, however doctors never understood the source of the infection.

Speaking of how the ordeal changed his life, Alex took more than a month to fully recover from sepsis.

He also encouraged him to take every opportunity, which brought him to Love Island a year later.

“It made me feel a real sense of mortality and made me think:” You know Alex, you have a hit on this earth, you have to do it correctly, do your best, take every opportunity. “



Dr. Alex also found love with girlfriend Amelia after leaving Love Island

“And I think that’s why, a year later, when it came to Love Island and it came to everything that followed, I was like, ‘you have to try because you don’t know what’s around the corner’ . “

In the conclusion of the video, Alex urged his fans to seize every opportunity and make the most of every experience.

He also listed the symptoms of sepsis, which include: indistinct speech, chills, non-urination, shortness of breath and discolored skin.
