In brief: Mgt.

There may have been an initial pneumonia, was the patient treated with medications? If he/she is still symptomatic, I would suggest a culture(s) of airway secretions and close follow up.
Monitor for fever, and please see a Pulmonologist. A copy of the Radiograph may be uploaded with more details provided during a virtual consultation.
