ill again

Well still fighting the council, but our local councillor is trying to help us now fingers crossed. I was rushed to hospital last week couldn't breath had be treated for a chest infection, but after loads of test was told I have pleurisy, on my 4th lot of antibiotics and feel really ruff. went to docs today for b12 injection and felt like I had run a marathon. slept all day after. has any one any idea how long it takes to recover from pleurisy everything I have found says weeks for some and months for others. Gp said it will take time because of the b12 deficiency. I am due to go on holiday soon so hope to be feeling a bit better for that, only in this country but going to see family so it will be fun and going with my 2 lovely gran children. Gp wants to see me again next week. I keep trying to smile but sometimes I do wonder what next and when or if things will get better for me and family, heres hoping!!!!!!!

Hi took me about 8 weeks to get over my attack of pleurisy ... I lost my voice and even after the 8 weeks I still got the odd twinge... It was probably about 3 months before I could say it was gone completely.. But it was my fault I got a cold and ignored it so after 6 weeks it turned to pleurisy....

Sympathies and hope you recover soon have a lovely holiday
