first course of antibiotics did not work - had to go back for an ex-ray and they say she still has an infection, taking different antibiotics now. Is it common that pneumonia does not resolve itself with a course of antibiotics?
i had pnuemonia back in jan and the first course of abs didnt work,its not unusual for an infection to have to be treated with a second course of abs, especially severe ones, hopefully with the new course of abs she will start to recover, they should re-do the x-ray when the course has finished tio establish that it has cleared.
