Once again looking for some advice as I try to recover from my pneumonia exacerbation and surgery. I have not exercised for a while due to the surgery issue. My pft numbers are way down after exacerbation. I took a 2 mile walk just now. I became sob but not too bad. However, I also felt lightheaded, headache and ears seem to hurt. Is this normal? I want to keep plugging before I see my Pulmo in two weeks. I am hoping the PFT's will,rise a bit after recovery from pneumonia and surgery bronchospasm. Dr said healing from bronchospasm should increase pft and oxygen somewhat. Oxygen is down a point or two from pre-exacerbation. I am pretty freaked out.
i would love to hear any related comments but especially related to exercise. Bless you all.
