I recently joined this forum after I spent total of 24 days in hospital. Brief outline was:initially taken in breathing problems quickly became exhausted despite 4 nebs,IV hydrocortisone, IV Magnesium, transfered to ITU.3 days later onto ward only to be moved to side room diagnosis Swine Flu later complication of pneumonia all of which flared my asthma.2.5 weeks later home only to be rushed back in breathing problems again admitted and on another lot of IV antibiotics (2lots when in before)and nebs. Was discharged after further 5 nights. I don't know if I'm expecting too much but it's my third day at home but I feel like I couldn't fight my way out a wet paper bag! Had a bath last night but my daughter had to wash my hair. I took my last antibiotic today and have 1 day left of steriods. Last 2 nights I have been coughing through night and today I can feel/hear tiny crackles.
I am not actually sleeping but am just laying on bed have not actually been up since discharge. I just feel completely wiped out. Am I expecting too much or should I be doing better by now?
