In brief: Minimal

It is likely you would have had any serious reaction or developed some other complications by now.
I hope the infection is clearing up and that you are feeling better. If you have any questions about your ongoing symptoms let your doctor or health tap know. Your pharmacist will be a good resource for your concerns.
