Pneumonia

A number of weeks ago I had an unexplained fever for which my GP thought ewas flu but after 7 days he gave me an antibiotic,  After three addtional days the fever was gone.  Subsequnt to that a week or so later I began coughing up green sputum mainly in the mornings that got a worse a little at a time.  During this time my only symptoms were a slight cough to mainly clear sputum production and slight fatigue or weakenss, with large amounts of green sputum.

One month of this and I returned to the GP who conducted a x-ray showing Slight pneumonia.  A second round of Antibiotics has been taken for the past four days.  I still am coughing green sputum in mornings but not as bad.  Weakness is better.

Question should the two rounds of antibiotics of taken care of this???

Should I see a Pulmonologist to do a scope to what is causing??? or other teting??
