Recovering From Pneumonia

The time taken to recover from pneumonia will vary on an individual basis, depending on the severity of the illness, presence of chronic health problems and age.

The following time intervals could be expected as a rough guide:

  • 1 week- resolution of fever

  • 6 weeks- improvement in cough and breathlessness

  • 3 months- resolution of most symptoms although tiredness may persist

  • 6 months- return back to normal
