72 years old with lung fungal infection. Taking antibiotic. Recovery time? - Online Doctor Chats
please proceed with the query.
are you there.
Hi, please proceed with the query.
yes - my father in law is 72 yrs old
he is asthmatic patient
so just wnat to know what ll happen now if he doesnt recover
his condition is not so good
what was he diagnosed as?
does he have any other medical illness?
like bp, diabetes
Fungal infection of lung is not severe thing to be treated
but since he ha asthma and bp he might have difficulty recovering
also just want to know how severe the death would be and what type of severe symptoms he will get
but he looks very severe
and very tired
is he admitted in hospital
and critical condition
there will be restrictive lung functions, difficulty in breathing, low immunity
he is still on medication
does he have difficulty in breathing?
if the doctor has adviced oxygen support you can get these at home
this will help him very much
otherwise it is a struggle
it is difficult to say whether he will survive becuase i have not seen him nor his case history
but his age and other factors
try to keep the immunity level up
like having vegetables & fruits
is he able to eat or is it through tubes
no he is able to eat
is he walking around, or sitting
no not much moving around
if he eats egg give him 1 everyday
pulses, dry fruits,carrots,pomegranate XXXXXXX
so otherwise the relavant diseases should be diagnosed right?
since he is already diagnosed with the disease, only thing possible now is care
asthmatics should take particular care of their health
they will be prone to respiratory infections
due to their low immunity levels
high Ig E levels
what is lg E
Immunoglobulin E, or IgE, is a natural substance in your body that plays an important role in the development of allergic asthma
do you have any more queries
It is difficult to describe everything since you do not have the reports
