My wife recently recovered from pneumonia (or so we thought) enough to try returning to work. However, after a couple of days, she was having trouble breathing and felt like her legs were going to collapse.
Her doctor eventually sent her to emergency where tests were conducted with the result that she was told she has "Low blood oxygen levels"
Does anyone know the meaning or implication of this ? i.e. what causes it, can it be treated,is it permanent etc..
Any help much appreciated. Thanks
