On Tuesday morning I was taken by ambulance to hospital (they suspected I had another pulmonary embolism) and I was diagnosed with pleurisy and bronchial pneumonia and sent home that evening with 7 day course of amoxicillin and Co-codamol. My wife called an ambulance after I collapsed through pain putting my shoes on to go to my gp with chest pains and breathlessness but I had no cough at all. Friday about midday I coughed up a lump of blood and about 45 minutes later I coughed up another bit of blood in mucous. I've got to have a chest xray done in 6-8 weeks but I'm wondering if I'm going to be able enjoy being around my kids on Christmas day. I've only had a total of 6 hours sleep since Monday evening and hoping that I can get more sleep. I'm 39 and ive had 2 tia's and a pulmonary embolism plus I've only got 40%sight left in my left eye. What sort of recovery time should I be looking at?
