ATYPICAL PNEUMONIA

I was released fromn the hospital 5 weeks ago from having atypical pnuemona. Currently I still get shortness of breath in the cold, after walking up stairs,  or upon any exertion. How much longer will this last? I mean its been five weeks?

I can tell you from personal experience that pneumonia can knock you down for some time. I have had it several times, the last time was before Christmas and was hospitalized for 3 weeks for intensive IV's (have other lung issues too). I am just starting to feel half way decent strength wise. I know that I have a ways to go....I can't tell you how much longer this will last for you...everyone is different. Make sure you get plenty of rest and don't push yourself while your body is recovering. Sunny
