I had MRSA in my lungs about a year and a half ago . I had a puss as well and they had to drain it out. I was hospilized for a month. It was a bad experience. I had one complication after the next. It finally cleared up but I can't seem to get my breathing back undercontrol. I take Alburerol. I am always very fatiques and Iget short winded very easly. I went to one Pulmanoligist who who diagnosed me with COPD because of the abnormal breathing. I got a second opinion. He said that was impossible to get from Nectratizing Pneumonia. He said my lungs looked great and I just need to exercise . The only thing is I don't have the stregnth to do much exercises. I do a little but I still am short of breath. I have a tendancy to get sick and fatigued out alot . Any imput ?

At first glance, I agree with second doctor. I had a similar experience after being idle for a long time and lost physical conditioning and was always out of breath and could not even do a stress test.

I forced myself to take a walk daily even though they wore me out at first and I quit a couple of times but as I persevered, the walks became less exhausting and in less than a month, I was able to make the mile walk much easier and now I look forward to them and enjoy the scenery - I live out in the country and one or two mile walk I now do with ease because I have built up my stamina through repetition. It worked for me but you should do whatever you and your doctors decide is best for you.

Thank you for the encouragement :) I can walk three miles when I walk... but it is slow takes me an hour and a half lol. But I used hike mountains and such.. .yes i think that I need to concentrate on my stamina . It is just discouraging sometimes when I exert myself and can't do as much as I could just a short time ago. This morning my husband and I are cleaning out woods and i am stacking wood :) I love that kind of work . I bought a "Total Gym " to use for stregnth training and cardio too . I will use it when it gets here to get on a training program to get stronger. Thanks again for the reply.

Your body might alsi be going through
Herxheimer's reaction "herxing" which can cause
fatigue, headaches and more which may effect
your stamina.
