  1. My husband is 60 and 3 weeks ago had was diagnosed with pneumonia in both lungs. After finishing his antibiotics he felt he was having a relaps. Pain in his back, some congestion, and very tired. They did a chest Xray and found his heart enlarged and diagnosed him with Congestive Heart Failure. Could the pneumonia have contributed to his CHF?
