Hi,

I really appreciate your concern, you have not mentioned any symptoms, pneumonia can be treated successfully with appropriate antibiotic, if it was pneumonia and was treated well then recurrence is less likely, if it is creating the doubt then you can go for further workup or you can consult the physician, heat pad will not work at all.

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

Regards,
