Hi Sam, You should bring your father to the emergency department
. It's obvious his pneumonia
hasn't gotten better. Ibuprofen
can cause fluid retention but it sounds like he might be in heart failure
and needs to be re-evaluated. He might have pleurisy
from the pneumonia, but everyone is just guessing right now. Does you Dad have a fever? He needs home oxygen if his colour is gray and his oxygen saturations closely monitored in case he has emphysema from his smoking. I'm assuming he is still on antibiotics. He needs to be reassessed today.Sam I went through this so many times with my own father. You need to bring him back to the hospital as it is so obvious they discharged him prematurely..Take care, Donna Edit: How did you make out with your Dad? Did you bring him to the hospital?
