Let me brief you.
Pulmonary artery hypertension is a condition that is similar to any person with blood pressure problems.
Those dietary and physical activities that are recommended for a patient with blood pressure is also applicable to him.
In general he should engage in mild to moderate exercise that is tolerable.
Avoid too much salt and too fatty / calorie rich food.
In addition to these since his symptoms are predominantly involving the lungs
he should avoid any strenuous physical exercises and activities.
Take precautions during cold and climate changes.
If he develops nasal congestion, sorethroat and other respiratory problems he should take treatment at the earliest.
In addition to that, he should avoid high altitude, deep diving and other recreational activities.
Above all, he should take his medicines religiously.

Do you have any other questions?
any other medicines doctor?
There are few other medicines available to treat pulmonary artery hypertension. But bosentan is preferred by many doctors.

that is enough doctor?
I wouldn't not be able to confirm if he needs other drugs without an opportunity to evaluate and monitor him regularly.
is there any permanent cure doctor?
It is better that his treating doctor answers this question.
or any operation
As I said earlier this condition is similar to any person with high blood pressure. The difference being his symptoms are predominant on his lung. Heart can get involved further in some cases.
Surgical remedies are tried for person who have lung and heart complications.
there have been several instances of fainting doctor
Please note that the surgery doesn't reverse pulmonary artery hypertension.
The fainting may be due to multiple reasons. It may be due to the medical condition per se or due to the medicines he is on.
He should discuss the problem with his treating doctor and find the reasons for fainting.
Do you have any more questions?
Thats all for now doctor
