I'm 30 yrs old and do a variety of exercises 4 days a week, so I'd say I'm pretty healthy. However I was admitted to hospital with severe pneumonia 2 weeks ago. I'm now home and off antibiotics. I have a lingering cough, sometimes breathless and feel tired. I've got another X-ray this week to see if the pneumonia has cleared from my lungs. At the moment I've been signed off for the week and if the xray is clear my docs said I can return to work next week. However I'm not sure how as I get breathless after 10mins of an activity and still very very tired. I do want to get back to work but not sure if I'll be able to cope with teaching all day. Has anyone else ever had this and how long did it take for you to recover and how long did you have off work?
