(First a warning regarding this thread. I'm not trying to sound like a complainer or whiner when saying some information, so try not to take it that way, just relaying things that happened relevant to the thread. Okay, now on to the thread)
So last night i had a slight scare when I was hospitalized from pneumonia which also caused me to have a pretty severe asthma attack. Everything ended up perfectly fine though (minus the whole pneumonia thing). So my question, for all of you who have had pneumonia before, how long should i wait until i start climbing again? Also, when I do start climbing again, I was previously on a training regimen. Would it be ill advised to continue with the training or should i just climb easier stuff for a while? I've heard after pneumonia sometimes climbers' ability level drops about 2-3 number grades for a couple months afterwards due to weakness. Wasn't sure if that was true or not (I was hoping my weakness would only last like a week. It's going to suck if it lasts longer)
Nobody be surprised if I'm constantly on here for the next week haha nothing to do but lay here and rest. That's the worst part of it.
