It means that you chest X ray shows a "minimal" problem in the upper part of your right lung. The solution to this problem lies in getting yourself examined by a chest specialist. It's important to know why a chest X ray was done - was it a "routine" X ray as part of a general health check or was it done specifically for respiratory complaints. There are a whole lot of possibilities especially if it's the latter.

It is quite common to get flu which can leave behind a bronchitis temporarily. This is called post viral bronchitis and the cough and noisy breathing take about 2 weeks and in some even 4 weeks to disappear. If you are coughing up sputum it may be tested for TB and other organisms if you also have fever, weight loss, anorexia, etc. especially since the CXR mentions the possibilities.

The tremors are only transient side effects of Salbutamol in Ventorlin.

My suggestion is that you must complete 2 more days of medications as advised by your doctor. She may ask for further tests when you follow-up with her, especially a CXR.

Your sputum is negative for tuberculosis - that's what the test report means. Hope you are much better now in terms of cough, etc.
