Due to a Viral Brinchitis that led to an “Acute Asthma Exacerbation” and 2 ER trips and then a 10 day hospital stay. Today is my first day home and this is not easy! I still feel out of breath and cough if I get up, talk a lot, move around at all. I am needing the nebulizer every 4 hours. I have have strong cough syrup that helps some. When I cough, I usually feel junk in my lungs. My family things I should be more pleasant and getting better. I feel terrible, a little scared and frustrated. What should recovery after a long hospital stay be like? Any experiences, ideas? I do see my primary care doctor tomorrow- can’t see pulmo until Friday.
