For those that have seen my previous posts I was admitted good Friday to ITU with asthma and too exhausted to breathe only on there 2 nights hdu 1 day then ward in isolation 2.5 weeks with Swine Flu (2nd time had it!) Anyway discharged on Monday got blue lighted and sirens back in on the Friday with another bout of pneumonia (bloods and one had returned to normal before discharged)So was in a further week IV antibiotics nebs the usual. Week and half later home.(home 20 May)
Would you belive it yet again sudden downhill chest bubbling!feel like can only get eggcup of air in rushed back in with Pneumonia AGAIN!!!(22nd June)
Family advised ? ITU see how I stabalize.Anyway moved from a&e resus to the emergency floor quite stable on just 2 litres of oxygen however dr came 3 times during night and oxygen increased up to 35 litres now of humidified oxygen and Dr tells me if this does not stabilise I would be on ITU and they would take over my breathing as was exhausted! Thankfully antibiotics they pumped into me iv steriods, back to back nebulisers, and whatever else I had worked and I won not ITU this time!😀
This is now my 3rd lot of pneumonia in 4 months. I've been home well be 2 weeks Monday but I still feel totally exhausted!!!!!don't want to do anything even in this lovely weather just wanna sleep or lay down. Any advice greatly appreciated.
