What are your experiences and recommendations for recovery from pneumonia? I am on my last day of antibiotics now (huge improvement day by day). I have follow-up chest x-rays tomorrow, so I'll be able to get medical advice then. However, I have heard people say they came back too early and caused themselves to get sick again. I certainly don't want to do that. But, I was playing so well before I got sick... If it matters, I am 6'3" 185 and 33 years old. Otherwise healthy and a non-smoker. Also, I don't really work out at all other than tennis. How long did you sit out? How slowly did you work your way into tennis?
