can anyone advise re: management of lung crackle, base of left lung,after flu/ pneumonia-feel exhausted after effort

since november, have had 6 courses of antibiotics-2 X week courses both left me feeling shattered

no more help from GP or hospital

up to last october had been very fit for over 2 years

had pneumonia in 2008 and similar start of 2010 which apparently left scarring at base of lung

am desperate to know if I will improve over time or in better weather.

cold weather, even though wrapped up warm brings on cold symptoms-amtaking a lot of vitamins
