Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.
Can I please ask when you first had Covid-19?
Do you currently have any symptoms or have you fully recovered?
The rules are different in different countries but generally you need to wait a certain length of time before you can be vaccinated. You can still get vaccinated if you have only mild effusion and no major symptoms.
In that case, it is better if you wait for your symptoms to fully recover. You’re already protected so you won’t get Covid-19 anytime soon.
Yes you can but it is less likely because you have some immunity.You need to be symptom free before you can be vaccinated.
I suggest you wait a bit longer to recover and then check with your doctor or vaccination centre about the criteria in your area for getting vaccinated since you recently had Covid-19.
Fast heartbeat means your body is still recovering from the infection and you need a bit of more time.
Are these X-rays from the same day?
If you have mildly raised heartbeat, it should be OK but yours is quite high especially when you get up. So I think you should wait a bit longer.
The X-ray from 8th September shows the infection has almost cleared.
No not pneumonia but effusion which is the result of the infection. And yes it will be absorbed over time.
I don’t think it needs draining if it is improving and your breathing is fine.It is a fairly big improvement in four weeks.
The first X-rat does seem to show collapsed lung and it has improved.
Your heart and lungs look fine otherwise.
I am not a radiologist but can’t see anything else obvious. You should get a report with your X-ray.
The report will give you all the details.
