I was diagnosed with pneumonia in both lungs 2/4/11. I was on two rounds of antibiotics and two rounds of steroids. Had 6 chest xrays. I missed a week of work and felt like I was dying. My xray on 3/4 was ot clear although I had no symptoms. So doc suggested one more xray 1st week of April. I feel completely back to normal and have resumed 4 hours of karate a week. I have had a runny nose and cough still but thought it was allergies. I got my xray yesterday. They called with results today and it is still NOT clear! I am told to go for a CT scan. I am 41 in relatively good health and can't believe whatever this is won't go away. Has anyone else ever had this type of experience?

My CT scan was ok - no masses or anything but still cloudy. They said it was scarring and they could not see more pneumonia. I had a chronic cough for about a year. I went to another doctor who put me on an Alvesco inhaler. I was on that for six months and it finally cleared up. I have bad allergies which they think slowed my healing. Allergy season was starting just as I was getting over my pneumonia.

I also have been coughing since the end of March 2012 and three x-rays going for CAT scan this Thursday, July 5. they're just concerned why the fluid is still there. very scared to tell me I have lung cancer. I do take medicine that help an inhaler and nose spray. Glad everything worked out
