  • Hi sorry to hear you are so unwell. And have ended up with pneumonia. Have you had the pneumonia jag. I had pneumonia in November too was admitted to hospital and put on abs and painkillers. I also had the pneumonia jag the last one being in 2015. But it was not as bad with having the jag. I was in for 3 days. I too have a low immune system. And have been referred to a immunologist I had a chest X-ray done in December and it had cleared up. May be ask your consultant if you have one. For a referral to see a immunologist take care

  • Sorry to hear that you're feeling so unwell. I hope that you get something sorted soon and that you start improving. Take care. XXX

  • Hi val, sorry you too are ill with pneumonia - I have been ill with it since December - haven't been outdoors for weeks. My immune system is low too - got have more blood tests and another chest X-ray. My respiratory doctor has said having another pneumonia vaccine won't prevent against all strains of it - I guess I'll have to dig out my juicer as part of it may be because I don't eat that well. Take care and hope you start feeling better soon. x
