Recovery after Pneomonia & sepsis

I've returned home from hospital after going in with pneumonia & sepsis, My blood pressure was so low I had to have a strong medicine that if it didn't work the next step would be a life support machine. Thankfully it did & I was in Intensive Care for 5 days.

I've been told it'll be a hard 6 week recovery by Docs.

What I'm concerned about is what damage would have been done to my lungs.

I have an appointment at Heartlands hospital mid Feb to see if there's anything they can do for my brittle asthma.

Thank you for reading this.

Happy & healthy new year!
