I am sorry that all i seem to have written on here recently are moans and questions but i guess i am having a difficult time at the moment, although pale in comparison to others on this forum, and my wishes goes out to everyone having a difficult time at the moment.
My question is, is it normal for recovery from an excerabation to take such a long time? I have been off work for 3 weeks now, struggled through work for a number of weeks before giving in and got signed off. I keep going back to the GP each week as i am still unable to undertake a level of activity that would allow me to return to work for even a day. I have been testing myself for the last few days, doing a little more activity each time, but this has left me exhausted and feeling a bit rough.
The difficulties are that at rest things are improving, less breathless but during any activities such and food shopping, seeing friends for a couple of hours etc is leaving me feeling rough. I am seeing this as that i am not quite ready to return to work (i have a very active role) and should allow myself the time i need?
I guess i am just concerned as following hospital admissions, i have recovered quicker than this time and hope that i am not just being a wimp and not pulling myself together.
Any advice of shared experiences would be grateful.
Thanks in advance.
