why do coughs and rales get worse 10 days after pulmonary embolism? no fever.

Cough,rales: If an extensive amount of lung damage occurred from the embolism which causes a degree of necrosis of tissue, appearance of more cough and rales raises suspicion of pneumonia or abscess. Even though there is no fever, careful examination of the damaged lung is called for.
