It varies as it can depend on The severity of the attack, the trigger, if there was an infection, the medication your were taking before and how well and quickly you recieved the right medication after as well as your general health and immunity and even if your female when in your cycle it happens
The important thing is to not get over excited about feeling better and run around before you have healed, as this can cause another attack or prolong the slow crappy feeling that can take ages to feel better from.
My general rule, (i have had sever asthma for 20 years, including many incubations and long hospital stays,) if you feel like crap, stay in bed and check your meds. Even when you start to feel better, stay in bed an extra day, same goes for other activities, if you want to run or exercise leave a couple of days after you feel fine to do it.
Generally though for an asthma attack that keeps me in emergency for 2-3 days, at least a week or two to fully recover, if its a longer stay in hospital say 3 weeks then i generally feel pretty fine afterwards. The lower the dose of meds before the attack the longer the recovery and irronically the more frequent the attacks the quicker the recovery which may be that im on more meds or my expectations are lower.
If the trigger was from a cold or infection or just lower peak flows the longer the recovery, 2 weeks min, butif i go to a friends house who has a cat, i recover in a day or two.
Watch your sugar intake with prenisolone, as it can cause that urinary tract infection feeling, and enjoy the radiant complextion everyone will say you have, it tends to clear up my pimples and migrains too.
Hope this helps, be kind to your self and take things slow, it will help you to stay healthy longer, more time for fun, your kids work etc.View Thread
