Bacteria in Lungs

I recently was told I have heavy growth of Morexalla catarrhalis, a bacteria. This seems to have been going on for a while now as blood was coming up with sputum. Additionally, my lungs hurt all the time, I get winded real easily, have night sweats and am fatigued pretty much always. What should I expect? I went to the doc but didn't have the culture done yet, he put me on antibiotics as a first step. Been off them for a week now and it still hurts to breathe. I have an appt on the 10th but am wondering if I should go in sooner.

Anyone else have experience with bacteria in your lungs?

Thank you
