I've been told that my recovery from the Pulmonary Embolism could be long and erratic. Today served to emphasise the point when I struggled all of the way round what should have been an easy 5km walk in Copa. I didn't feel my heart racing, maybe because I walked so slowly, but it was exasperating and a little alarming to feel so unfit. My breathing was heavy and laboured and I even contemplated sitting down on a bench with a kilometre to go when I began to feel a little spaced out. Instead, I just walked even more slowly and made it home OK. The rest of the day was pretty sedentary and I had no problems. On the plus side, I had a call from the office of the Respiratory Specialist I wasn't scheduled to see for another month to say they had a cancellation tomorrow, so I'm hopeful of getting a useful opinion about my situation and prognosis.
