For those who recovered from COVID...
What was the most severe medical issue that you endured?

Both my parents are in the hospital for Covid and unfortunately my dad is on a vent thanks to ARDS. Long road ahead but just looking to see if any of you have come back from the brink.

re: For those who recovered from COVID...
I haven't personally, but I know a few people who have been hospitalized with it. A couple were only on O2 another was in ICU for a while and was nearly put on a vent. The one who only needed oxygen was just diagnosed with COPD, though she never smoked a day in her life. Such a weird virus in that it seems to be all over the place in regards to severity.

Prayers sent up for your folks

Almost a month later and I still can't smell. I have kind of gotten used to it. I can walk in the bathroom at work right after someone blows it up and it doesn't affect me at all. It's kind of like a budget brand super power. I'd still like my smell back, though.

Recovered from Covid, then developed severe double pneumonia. Spent almost 2 weeks in hospital, then sent home on oxygen. Been on oxygen for 2 1/2 months. Still can’t breath right, SUX!! (54 with no underlying heath cond.)

The worst I had was a fever of about 102, but that subsided the next day. I was fortunate not to have any other severe symptoms.

Sorry to hear about your parents - particularly your dad. I wish them both a speedy recovery.

I know of atleast 3 people that were very near death recovered. All had/have a long road to full recovery. My dad is coming home today after spending 2 weeks in the hospital. He never went on the vent but stayed on high O2 for 8 days.

I had awful stomach issues that are not uncommon, post-covid. The worst issue I had while I had Covid was the God-awful sinus drip that may have created the stomach problems.

Luckily for me I just felt "Not right" for about a week, had a cough, and felt like someone was sitting on my chest for a few days as well. I lost since of taste and smell for a few weeks but all back to normal now about a month after having it.

re: For those who recovered from COVID...
Sorry to hear this man.

My mom had it. She is a healthy & active 74 years old. She wasn't in the hospital, but she was in bed for two weeks. Every time she got up to do something it wore her out. She couldn't taste or smell either. She was really sick for almost two weeks. That was in July.

While she is much better now, she says she still doesn't feel like herself before having it. For a few months after she felt find, but just couldn't do a lot without getting fatigue after 10-15 mins.

She walks every morning, but since having it she isn't able to walk as far as she used to. She losses her breath much faster,

But it seems different for everyone. Some people are sick for a few days and thats it. Some people just lose taste and smell and that's it.

My only symptom and the only one I don't want to deal with. Give me the head cold for a week like my wife, I don't want to go without smell and taste for another couple/few months.

re: For those who recovered from COVID...
I was fine for first week or so then had high fever for a week and ended up having trouble keeping o2 level up, spent 2 days in hospital but luckily never got put on oxygen or any other invasive stuff. Just got some vitamins and monitoring.

I get exercise induced asthma and have to use an inhaler so it wasn’t a huge shock that it was rough on me but I was never considerably worried about catching it either. 36/m/6’/225lbs

Dr also diagnosed me as diabetic (sugar was 200+ and a1c was 10) which came as a huge shock, my diet has been pretty shitty the past year, lots of boozing and eating takeout but I haven’t had any symptoms of diabetes. It does run in my family though and not people being lardasses. My grandfather lived to his 90’s and was not overweight, exercised, played golf every day etc but was diabetic.

Apparently there has been some attention being given to studies finding that covid not only is worse in diabetics but may cause or worsen diabetes in some patients.

I don’t really know what to think about the link between the two, last time I had a physical and blood work for life insurance was around 2 years ago and I was perfect in every area but triglycerides which wasn’t a surprise cause I eat a shite ton of steak. I’m back to eating healthy, based on past experiences I expect with zero soda and other sugars I’ll lose 20+lbs in the next month.

Took dad about 8 days to develop double pneumonia. Fortunately, I was able to talk with him over the phone before he got too sick. But, everything I’ve read says the Covid related double pneumonia is less severe but progress far slower that normal bacterial pneumonia. I guess the virus infiltrates t-cells in the lungs and that’s what spreads it.
