I'm new to this site or any other site for that matter being involved it forums! I just wondered if anyone could give me answers and advice....
4 weeks ago my husband and I set of for America to visit our Daughter and Grandchildren whom we hadn't saw for 2 years, anyway after 2 long flights and a crazy layover at JFK airport 400+ people in a queue to get through customs and security and only 2 on the desks it was hot and clammy inside and there wasn't any air con on I was just feeling so weird then, after finally getting through we had a mad rush to get to our gate for our connection anyway we just made it I was completely exhausted.
Sorry but this is a long post I just want to explain everything in the last 4 Weeks.
Finally arrived at our Daughters and then I was ill and in bed for the 1st 3 days just feeling really out of it, started to take varies mess picked up a bit and then able to start to have some quality time with my Grandchildren tho not feeling 100% and very tired.
So 2 days before coming home which was only 8 days in total I started with a sore throat and unwell, soon as we arrived home I was in bed just feeling so ill really bad coughing I had a phone consultation and prescribed Amoxicillin for a chest infection, for the whole week they did absolutely nothing and getting worse and worse my husband took me to the doc and was again given another week of stronger antibiotics can't remember the name Dy something little Green capsules just 1 a day for a week, again did nothing, so the I was getting really bad pain on the right hand side in the ribs and going round into my back so unbearable never had pain like it in my life I couldn't breath properly very shallow and the slightest move was excruciating! So then in absolute agony my husband got the ambulance and did checks and sent me to hospital this bank holiday just gone 29th May they did all the test and an X Ray revealed that I had Pnuemonia the consultant said I could return home with yet another 2 lots of Anitbiotics Clarithromycin 500mg and Co-amoxiclav 500mg so I've been in bed trying to recover now since Monday 29th it's now Sat 3rd June and only today and tomorrow to go on the meds I'm still in lots of pain in the right area as above been taking prescription Co-Codamaol for the pain every 4 hours nothing is working.
I have been reclined in bed as comfy as I can get constantly on my I pad researching I think it Pluerisy pain that I have from the things I have read, at night I can hardly sleep trying to lie flat to stretch out my upper body but the pain is so bad.
I've come on this site to ask if anyone has had similar experience to mine and if so how long does this excruciating pain last? my family have been trying to get me back to the hospital but I don't want to go, but I am worried and don't know what to do!
Again sorry to go on and on,
Can anyone help?
