Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It ought to be a new infection / not repetition of the old scenario...
That you are improving is a good sign - shows response to the medicines.
[Only if you are not improving, you have to be investigated for Pleurisy, Infective Endocarditis and so on - not just drug resistant bacteria alone.]

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
