Woman goes into septic shock after giving birth, has her feet and hands amputated
Krystina Pacheco, 29, of Pleasanton, Texas, gave birth to her daughter Amelia on Oct. 24, 2022, in what she described as an uneventful C-section delivery. Two days later, on the day she was discharged from the hospital, Pacheco said she started feeling feverish but assumed it was just part of her recovery post-C-section and was given ibuprofen by a nurse. When she continued to feel unwell at home, Pacheco said she went to see a doctor, who sent her to a local emergency room.
