I was diagnosed with pneumonia beginning October. Didnt need hospitalising and have spent 10 weeks recovering at home. I still get a dull ache in site of lower right lung where pneumonia was diagnosed but no cough. The pain can be there for full days and nights. Does anyone else have these pains after recovering from pneumonia . Also I went back to work full time on Monday and as I work in a school was subjected to a variety of germs. I am now really upset as I've only lasted 3 days before being off again with same chest pains and a heavy cold. I wonder if I've gone back too soon. Does it take longer to recover from pnuemonia.
