Permenant lung damage
My partner is recovering from Legionella pnuemonia, his second chest x ray (taken 3 weeks afer leaving hospital) shows intraalvelor exudates. He has been ill for a total of 6 weeks, he is 46 and was in good health prior to this. What we want to know is he likly to develop permenant damage to his lung eg scarring is this what happens with this type of pneumonia? or should he in time make a full recovery?
