Smile post pneumonia

I had pneumonia the middle of November...Since then my normal energy hasn't returned....I work three twelve hour shifts a week and after eight hours so exhausted...Always work two in a row and do nothing when off the next day..I checked my pulse ox finally yesterday and it was only 92, before pneu 98...( work at hospital)) Just in the last two weeks coughing more, still mostly dry esp after laying down for long periods..Do you think my energy is low because of low pulse ox? To busy taking care of others to even think of taking it before...It is that busy of a floor...Nonstop...I'm 60 yrs old..Took it right before leaving work and so tired, just left...Should have asked nurse...Thinking of going back to doctor tomorrow..(( first post ))

Re: post pneumonia

Some forms of pneumonia can cause asthma. I'd see a pulmo and get a full assessment.
