Just went to A and E on the advice of my doctor and diagnosed with pneumonia. I’m 18. How long will it take me to recover? I’ve been given a week of antibiotics, I’m already at home from uni

Sorry to hear this op
I had pneumonia in the new year
You will be pretty rough for the first two weeks at least but hopefully not too much longer
You may be out of breath for a while longer though

Stick to warm drinks and keep your upper half covered with extra layers at all times

Should clear up in a week or so, it doesnt sound like a particularly serious case of it though if they told you to go home with just a course of anti-biotics. Definitely worth going back in if it does get worse though.
I had it years ago and ended up in the ICU from it :lol:

Yeah I saw the doctor at the hospital yesterday and said how amazing the progress was…my infection markers were 187 when I went in and now 29…says I should be ok to go back to uni monday. Just paranoid now of going back and getting ill again
