Specializes in General Practice

Healing process : Even though the pneumonia is no longer evident in the Xray or examination you may still experience symptoms of cough, shortness of breath for a while as the lung heals. If the symptoms persist or worsen you should always go back for a re evaluation with your doctor to ensure it is completely resolved or something else is not causing your symptoms
