Its been two months since my chest infection. A recent x-ray revealed that my left lung was slightly inflammed near the diaphragm. Ive been spitting out yellow-green sputum for two consecutive months now. A week ago, I got a mild case of tonsilitis, which is now better, but the phlegm that keeps coming is still very yellow-greenish and thick. Does this mean my chest infection is still not ok completely? Is the bacteria still there? Can another chest infection possibly recurr if the phlegm keeps coming? Is it something I should get checked out?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
