    Hi it can take a good month or so to recover from a bad bout so give it a bit more time.  If after taking the ab's it doesn't help within 5 days go back to the doctors.  Don't take any chances with your lungs.  I hope you feel a lot better soon.  x

    Oh and if you are still smoking you need to pack it in asap.  Smoking will make your chest infections worse and affect recovery time as well.  x
