I was diagnosed with broncial pneumonia and on antibiotics and the steriods zpack, plus the the inhaler. Had to get xrays of chest. I am taking medicine as directed, how long will I have this? I was coughing 4-5 days before I saw Dr. She said she was glad I came in. I cannot rest, steriods keep me from sleeping. Can I resume some of my activities, I play cards and don't want to spread this around?
