Fenland man who underwent double leg amputation following sepsis reveals “determination” to live life to the full




A Fenland man who underwent amputation of both legs after being diagnosed with sepsis is speaking out on how his life has changed “dramatically” since developing the condition.

Christopher Chapman, 34, from Chatteris, was admitted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in August 2018 after sustaining a skull fracture when he was assaulted.

Five days after his admission to hospital, Christopher was found to have developed septic shock and acute respiratory distress syndrome which resulted in him needing surgery to amputate both legs below the knee.
