In brief: Please see below.

If you've seen your doc & been diagnosed with bronchopneumonia, you should have received a prescription for antibiotics.
Take the medicine as prescribed -- don't skip doses!also, make sure you stay well hydrated & get a lot of rest. Usually, your doctor will want to see you in a few weeks to ensure that the infection is gone. Most have no long term problems once the infection clears. Feel better!
