  • Yes I have had it 2 times. I had to have antibiotics, and lots of rest. I was miserable. It took me about 2 weeks to get over it completely.
    Here's something to read if you want. Hope you're feeling better soon...

  • I've had it and I was miserable. For two weeks all I did was sleep. Then after I was over it, it took me about a month to regain my strength and to not feel wiped out all the time. The dr gave me antibiotics and cough medication.

  • I haven't but my 13 year old daughter did in May.  My dr wanted a follow up x-ray 6 weeks later which showed she still had pnemonia, so she ordered another x-ray for 4 weeks after that (which was last week) and my dd has finally been given the all clear.
