You have an infection localised to the lower portion of your left lung. Follow the medication as your Doctor ordered and it should subside. While at it, have a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, hydrate well with enough water. Exercise moderately if you're up and able to do it.

You might have pneumonia now at resolving stage,
And you have already done the course so do not worry.
on ultra sound you have enlarged prostate,if it does not give any problem like frequent nocturnal urination or during the day,you have not to worry.
you do not give urine report,if any thing abnormal then we should think of prostate.
ok and bye.
