After going through your history, I would say you should be slightly worried because this flu could have been now imposing with some secondary bacterial infection. If you would have come to my clinic, then I would like to along with your current treatment also start one antibiotic like azithromycin for you.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
