Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 32 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry that you have pneumonia.

If you have no fever and you feel that you can do your chores, the 10-20 minutes of being up and outside will not worsen your pneumonia. Your blood pressure is low normal and also, as long as you have no dizziness, that should not be a problem. The most important is that you do not exhaust yourself while out of bed and drink at least 64 ounces of water daily (more if you sweat).

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
