    Hope you get well soon. I think some of that may be related to Chinese Plague, but I think some of that is pretty normal recovery from some hospitalization occurrences. I know I had to work really hard to get my energy and lung capacity back after a heart attack being in the hospital for a quadruple bypass. I had a little gizmo that they had me use about 6 times a day if I can remember that you sucked in as hard as you can several times to try to re-expand your lungs that closed up during the surgery. And I had to get up and walk for 15 minutes at a time about 6 times every day. I just had a path through the house that I walked over and over. Definitely got me out of breath in the beginning.

    So, keep working at it, keep your spirits up and I bet you can overcome all of this and get back to normal. I don't know how exactly this disease compares to bypass surgery, but I would say that in 6 months time I was about 60% to 70% and it probably was a full year to get back to 90%. I'm not sure I ever got better than 90% because there are sill things I can not do that I used to do without getting tired.

    But look at the bright side. I have to worry about getting chinese plague and you probably don't !

    Hang in there, and good luck !

    Glad you are getting through it. I’ve read in one or two places about blood type also playing a role in severity. Do mind sharing your blood type; if not publicly then by PM?

    I know I did not have any heart problems before all this crap, now I am on heart meds and my blood pressure rarely goes back to the 127/70 it use to run. Breathing is getting better but I still need O2 all the time. Main problem is one lung is only 50% and I am not expelling the carbon dioxide or whatever like I am suppose to.

    I the bright side I can almost burp on demand. :P

    I thought so too. Unfortunately the anti-bodies only last 90ish days and you can get it again. They say the second time is worse than the first.

    A Negative. My wife didn't get sick and she is O Positive. One of the nurses in the ICU told me they had ZERO O positive patients.

    I hope they sent you home with Combivent inhaler. If not, as your primary care provider for one.

    That is the first time I have heard that. Who told you that ? Do you have that tested on a regular basis or what ?
