Recovery From COVID-19 Illness May Take Months


Respiratory Function Can Be Slow to Recover  

Health Editor’s Note: As the course of the COVID-19 pandemic has proceeded, doctors are gaining experience in treating this virus and more people are surviving.  These patients recover, but that recovery may be long and difficult. Three months after discharge from the hospital 70% continue to have abnormal lung scans as the lungs are still not healed. These patients did not have previous medical conditions with their lungs.

Most of the patients, in the study, who had continuing lung issues after recovery did not have the severe form of COVID-19 and none needed mechanical ventilation. The patients continued to cough, were short of breath, had headache and fatigue and gastrointestinal problems and abnormal CTs of their lungs. Recovery from COVID-19 is not immediate for some and strategies much be worked out to help with those cases. COVID-19 can proceed from acute phase to a chronic phase of the body trying to heal lung damage suffered during the acute phase….Carol
