Have been reading posts for quite a while and thought it was time to say hello!
I was only diagnosed with moderate/severe asthma last year and have been suffering quite a lot recently.
Christmas eve i ended up in hospital with pneumonia, ended up with pleural effusion and finally came home last saturday.
Whilst i know i should still be taking it easy i decided to stat work last monday. Despite being out of hospital for a week im still finding it really difficult to catch my breath and even a steady walk in town leaves me breathless and exhausted!
Has anoyone suffered from pneumonia and found it took a long time to return to 'normal' health?
