    I'm not a medical expert of any kind, but in my experience with things that kicked my ass hard, slow and steady regular exercise like maybe a daily walk around the park and nothing harder. Your body will tell you if you need to step it up or ease it back.

    From what you described, which is scary as F, I might even put in a "light" exercise day followed by a recovery day. Gradual is what you are looking for. I've done a few "damn I hope this won't be permanent" injuries and that is what worked for me.

    Yoga is probably the most important thing you ever did with your life. Flexible, relaxed and built over time are the things that let you come back from things that put other people into wal mart scooters forever.

    Also I would NOT drop your guard yet. I would stay under medical supervision for the next 30 just to be sure. Lots of guys have gotten to zero symptoms and gone home only to have it all go bad fast. Don't screw around with this, if we've learned anything it is that everyone gets a very different experience.

    Again I have no medical experience at all. So take that for what it's worth.

    I'm glad you are looking down at the grass not up, Yoni. Hope you get back to 100% soon.

    I've read that high doses of vitamin C, along with standard doses of vitamin D3 (2000 iu), 30 mg zinc, 250 mg quercetin, and weekly doses of ivermectin aid in recovery. Also a low dose of aspirin.

    Sorry to hear about your bout with covid but I'm glad that you have recovered. Continue to get better.

    I was unable to keep even water down, so I was put in hospital and put on IV's. Thank G-D, the doctors believed in and used the Ivermectin protocol,
    so I was put on it as soon as I was tested positive.

    I was so bad I had 2 days, where everyone was surprised, that I survived those 2 days.

    I am now back in the USA, having tested no Covid with PCR test. But I am really exhausted.

    I am sure that rucking at least 5 days a week plus yoga and strength training helped me survive this Chicom bio-weapon.
    Glad you're feeling better at least. I'd be interested to hear more about that protocol and what their SOC was, and other info you can supply. What supplements, meds, etc are you using now to address any damage, avoid long covid, etc?

    Kol habriyut Yoni!
    Means "wishing you good health", for the non Heebs.
    Also interested in what meds/supplements are recommended for Rona recovery.
    Based on what I have read, vax post actual infection and recovery is not necessary and may well be harmful, at least in the short term.

    I had it this past February. It was like a bad case of the flu for me. I was out of the gym for about 2 weeks. I do cross fit 4 times a week and a regular workout 3-4 times a week. I went right back and and could barely finish a workout. I kept at it though and after about 3 weeks I felt pretty much 100%. So in my case I went right back at it. Sounds like your case of COVID was worse than mine so it may take you longer to get back to 100%. When you get back to working out do what your body lets you do and go from there.

    It can take up to four months to replace red blood cells. As I understand, the virus damages the membrane of red blood cells.
