Your description suggests that you had both pneumonia and bronchitis and that the wheezing was due to the bronchitis. Sometimes with infectious bronchitis, the bronchitis can set off asthma that then persists after the infection is gone. That is what seems to have happened to your lungs.
You should receive treatment for asthma or, what some people may call, asthmatic bronchitis. That should involve 2 inhaled medicines and maybe 1 oral medicine. With that, you should get good relief.
