Pnemonia Recovery Question

I was diagnosed with pnemonia about three weeks ago...I was initially diagnosed with brochitis, but they didn't do a chest x-ray, so I went an extra week with pnemonia before going back, getting correctly diagnosed, and being prescribed an antibiotic. After I started taking the antibiotic, I finally started feeling a lot better, and, this past week, felt 100% again.

So, last night I attempted to go for a short jog. After less than 1/8th of a mile, I was extremely out of breath and started wheezing/coughing, and had to turn around. Is this typical during pneumonia recovery? If you've had it, how long was it before you could exercise again? My doctor didn't say anything specific, and they are closed so I can't call today...thanks for any info

i haven't ever had it, but my mom needed almost 2 months of rest and antibiotics because the same thing happened to her- they didn't diagnos it right away. i personally would rest up for another couple weeks, and if you need to get out and about, start with walking and work you way up. your lungs need some time to recover!

The inflammation and irritation in your lungs can remain long after the actual infection is gone. Just take things slowly and work your way up back to your usual exercise routine.

You need much much longer to recover. For example, from a pretty normal virus infection with sinusitis you'd need about four weeks in which you'd perhaps take walks at best. That should give you an idea of what kind of time span we're talking here. So in the first say four weeks of feeling 100% again, I'd start with walks. Nothing exhausting at all. And after that try a first short jog IMO.

Thanks so much for you answers. I've had a ton of energy lately that I feel like I have to do SOMETHING. I walked two miles over the weekend, and have been doing these short 10-minutes workouts my cable has on-demand, and those have been alright...I can't wait until I can run again though

It took me months to get back to normal. I felt fine on the outside doing regular stuff, but if I did anything tougher, like walking a distance or even laughing really hard, thats when I felt like I couldn't breathe. It's your lungs, they take awhile to allow full capacity again. Just take it easy
