Chest X Ray
evidence of peribronchial cuffing is suggestive of fluid collecting in the small airways and also means collapse of that area of the lung and this picture can be caused by several conditions.
The treatment that you had with antibiotics, steroids
, nebulisers is standard as most infections resolve and the Chest X Ray shows complete clearance at 6 weeks.
So the important thing now is rest and plenty of fluids, and medications, but getting that repeat Chest X Ray and making sure all is right.
If there is still evidence of a lung collapse, a bronchoscopy
is a must and perhaps a CT scan
if you haven't already done so, and well done if you have never smoked.
