    Found out I have pneumonia yesterday and season starts sept 15th started antibiotics. question is has anyone that has experienced it have suggestions for getting over it quicker?

    Depending on the severity of the condition, a mild case being referred to as "walking pneumonia," a patient could hasten his recovery with some limited physical activity, increasing his intake of fluids, and an antibiotic regimen.
    Check with your doctor before deciding on the level of severity in your case.

        I had it and was over it in a week or so.
        You may feel a little weaker but should be o.k. by the 15th.

          my chest only hurts on deep breaths and when I lay down and I only have a weeks worth of antibiotics so I think its not to bad. they said that after its gone fatigue and short breath might hang around and I was looking more for conditioning that would help get rid of that since that was what I spent the summer doing before now.

            Check with your doctor for any conditioning exercise. Modest to start and I would include deep breathing exercise. A steam room in a spa would sound good to me. But, check with your doctor.

              I don't know whats going on. I had pneumonia about 6 weeks ago, started feeling better then ended up with the flu and passed it to my son. Started feeling better and now I have a cough back. Sick and tired of being sick and tired. Seeing a pulmonary specialist next thursday since this is a recurring issue.

                Quicker - Schmicker!
                Like Treestand said! Your health is MUCH more important than opening day!
                Broken bones, colds and lacerations can be overcome!
                PEE-MAH-NONIAH!!!
                Not taking it seriously could lead to the big "Dirt Nap"!
                My wife was a CRTT (Respiratory Tech) for 25 years!
                Get rid if the crud, there'll be other seasons!

                  You have plenty of time to recover fully before season starts. Talk to your doctor for best tactics and progress check but I've done that a few times and my secret to success is to stay in bed for a week and don't exert yourself for a few weeks. Your body needs all its energy to fight pneumonia and that is priority one for at least two weeks. You should feel much better after a week but give it two to make sure you don't have a relapse. If you are not fully recovered, you might want to skip deer hunting this season or do it from the seat of a pickup.

                    skipping season isn't an option. I'm thinking ill be hunting closer to the truck and buying a hang on so I can leave it in the tree instead of using my climber, I already plan on being down till next week and doing some light walking to make sure I stay on my feet till then.

                      i'm just curious if a month out ill be ok to condition any lasting effects out or if I'm stuck with them till they decide its time and I'd be wasting my time to try.

                        If you have bacterial pneumonia, the antibiotics will have you feeling better in a week or less. If you have viral pneumonia, it will take longer for your immune system to deal with the virus. In the case of the viral pneumonia, rest and fluids are important.

                          Savage,
                          I was a medic in the service when I got bacterial pneumonia.
                          Working in the hospital I went from staff to patient in an hour or so. My main symptom was I could not stay awake. They broke two thermometers because they thought they were defective and I could not possibly have a temperature that high. They never told me how high, but I suspect it was around 104deg.
                          After an injection of 2.4million units of penicillin, i went to bed and slept for 24hours. After waking, I think it was about 24 hours before I was back on duty. About a week before I felt back to normal.
                          Good luck, take care of yourself.

                            they said mines bacterial or appears like it. haven't had a fever went to doctor day after feeling sick and pain started. so I think I caught it early. thanks for the knowledge, I was just looking for when I should get normal breathing back and finding out from somebody who had it before i figured was the best way.

                              All very good advice. All I would add is that if you don't follow your doctors advice and follow up with a second visit to make sure you are disease free. You might even need a second battery of antibiotics and an X ray. Rushing your recovery only contributes to "Antibiotic resistant Germs" and weakens your lungs. You might find yourself sick again next year at this time.
