Mgt: After a pneumonia infection there may be residual inflammation in the lung. Other possible causes are development of a secondary infection, or partial resolution of the pneumonia. You can be referred to a specialist, or your PCP may re evaluate with lung function testing and possibly another chest radiograph. If there is a fever, please see them today.
