Good day all, its been a while since I post anything but I have been struggling with problems that came about on vacation.
Here's the overall picture..
While driving to Florida from Michigan while passing through Georgia I developed severe pain in my lower stomach . Went to an emergency room and ended up having to have Emergency Gall Bladder Removal, during the surgery a blood clot in my leg broke loose causing a pulmonary embolism, after 10 days in hospital finally left Georgia so weak standing was very hard walking was harder still glad to be out of hospital so we continued to Florida.
Unfortunately 3 days later had to go to a Florida Emergency room and was diagnosed with pneumonia in my right lung.
This is something I really could have done without as I have severe Copd.
Its been about 2 months since the operation and about a month from getting out of hospital for pneumonia and I am still Struggling with SOB after walking just a few steps. Seems like I have improvement one then day then pay for it the next.
Trying not to be sitting around as I know being sedentary is not good for recovery but I have no idea if I'm getting better or not. Or if I ever will,,,
The doctors here just say it'll take a while cause you've been through a lot.
I just don't understand why I do well one day then do worse the next few days or longer.
To tell you the truth I have no idea what I'm asking here.
I'm scared, not sure what to expect. Frustrated and well mostly uncertain.
Any advise exercise suggestions or anything would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry about the long post. Thank You
