Here are some ...: The process of suffering from pneumonia and its Rx may take a lot of wind out of the patients; its pace of recovery may widely vary. All we can do is work closely with Doc to modify your internal and external environments so to optimize functional recovery with your own residual strength with healthy lifestyle without overindulgence & obsession in addition to drug use; give time & patience as well
