Louise Thompson thought she was ‘going to die again’ after being admitted to hospital
Louise Thompson has admitted she thought she was “going to die again” after her emergency readmission to hospital, a year after the traumatic birth of her son.
The 32-year-old former Made In Chelsea star admitted on Saturday that he was doing “very well” before he suffered a haemorrhage and lost around three liters of blood.
She spent a month in intensive care after welcoming her 14-month-old son Leo-Hunter Libbey with her boyfriend Ryan and is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and postpartum anxiety after the near-death experience of childbirth.
Louise had previously been in the hospital after undergoing a “little operation” in the midst of her grueling battle with Asherman’s syndrome.
The condition causes scar tissue to form and build up inside the uterus; it is unknown if his recent admission was due to complications from surgery.
Tough: Louise Thompson, 32, said her latest emergency readmission to hospital left her thinking she was “going to die again” a year after the traumatic birth of her son.
In her first Instagram post since her hospital stay, she detailed: ‘I’m not going to let this stop me. I learned a lot from last year and I feel in a much stronger frame of mind than last year, so fingers crossed.
‘I’m a bit afraid of leaving the house (or sometimes even getting up) so slowly and I’ll spend a lot of time bored at home, so send me a message.
‘I have to say I’m a strong damn cookie. And I have to hold on to the fact that our bodies are remarkable and can heal from such extraordinarily brutal things. I can and I will heal from this.
“From feeling all my extremities go cold as my blood tries to protect my vital organs, to shutting down my entire pain response when I had 4x cannulas inserted into my arms at the same time in Rhesus, wow what a trip.?????
‘Thank you doctors + medicine and those dedicated to those who improve medicine and scientific things for keeping me alive????
A hemorrhage is medically defined as blood loss from damaged blood vessels, and can be both internal and external.
It can occur in almost any part of the body, and if it cannot be controlled or is caused by a serious injury, it may require surgery.
It comes after Louise’s fiancé, Ryan Libbey, revealed that she was rushed to hospital after hemorrhaging.
Strong: The 32-year-old former Made In Chelsea star admitted on Saturday that he was doing “very well” before he suffered a haemorrhage and lost around three liters of blood.
Taking to Instagram to share an update on the Made In Chelsea star, Ryan explained that he and Louise were forced to cancel their St. Lucia vacation after she required emergency surgery and a “tight check.”
Louise previously took to Instagram to share that she had an “unexpected medical situation” but did not elaborate.
Ryan added that since her health issue, Louise is “stable” and recovering at home, describing her girlfriend as a “warrior”.
In her first Instagram post since her hospital stay, she detailed: ‘I’m not going to let this stop me. I’ve learned a lot from the last year and I feel in a much stronger headspace.’
Posting to his Stories, Ryan wrote: ‘2023 started out great for me and my family.
‘Last Friday it flipped on its head again. Louise suffered a hemorrhage again at home. He was rushed to the hospital for surgery and close monitoring for four days.
‘Louise is home now, stable and well. She is a warrior!
‘Leo has caught impetigo at the nursery. Dad is tired.
We were supposed to be landing in St. Lucia right now for a two week break. I will be back online soon.
Family: Louise spent a month in intensive care after welcoming 14-month-old son Leo-Hunter Libbey with boyfriend Ryan in 2021, and suffers from PTSD and postpartum anxiety
The reality television personality was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder after suffering complications giving birth to her son Leo-Hunter in 2021.
She later told her followers that Leo-Hunter had been treated in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and she had been treated in the adult ICU after the birth.
On Christmas Day, he shared a heartfelt post paying tribute to the NHS staff who “worked through the night to save my life.”
