If I get wet lungs, is exercise like the gym not recommended?

1 Answer:

Hello good afternoon Christopher.


Wet lungs (called pneumonia in the medical world), is an inflammatory condition of the air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs, so they are swollen and filled with fluid. The causes include bacterial, viral, fungal infections, or due to foreign objects such as food or drink, saliva, or vomit that enters the lower airway (lungs). Symptoms of pneumonia include coughing, high fever, shortness of breath, chest pain (especially when coughing or when inhaling), decreased appetite, etc. To diagnose pneumonia, apart from being based on questions and answers about complaints and physical examinations, other additional examinations are needed, such as blood lab tests, lung x-rays, and sputum examinations. Treatment of pneumonia varies, from outpatient treatment with medication (such as antibiotics, fever-reducing drugs, etc.) to hospitalization because it requires oxygen, injection antibiotics (injection), intensive care, etc.


If at this time you still feel complaints and have not finished treatment, then you should first avoid strenuous activities, including exercise in the gym. This aims to prevent the healing time from becoming prolonged due to lack of energy. However, if at this time you have finished undergoing treatment and have re-controlled and are declared to have experienced recovery by the doctor who treated you and are allowed to do sports, then start with light exercise first. You can start by walking for 30 minutes each day, at a slow to moderate pace. Then if you don't feel any complaints after doing the exercise, you can do jogging with a gradual duration (for example, before you were sick you were able to jog for 1 hour, then start with jogging with a duration of 25% first (15 minutes), then the next day increase to 50% (30 minutes), etc. If after gradual exercise you do not experience complaints you can resume more strenuous exercise (such as in the gym) but with the approval of the doctor who treats you and examines you directly. If you experience difficulty breathing during your exercise, then slow down or stop the exercise immediately.

That's all, hope it helps.


Greetings, dr. Denisa
