Pulmonologist 's  Response
you have pneumonia no doubt . some relief is there. chest x ray takes 6 weeks time to resolve opacity.
so you may wait for 6 weeks/or you take CT chest to rule out for primary causes like malignancy
you didnot give smoking history/ocupational history.
so consult your doctor immediately.
