My father is 60 yrs has developed a pleural effusion which became PUS. what is a possible prognosis for that ?
My father is 60. he developed a pleural effusion about a week ago which got slightly complicated. the fluid became pus (acute bacterial empyema). a substantial volume of the fluid has been drained through a tube, and he seems fine. latest x ray shows an elevated diaphragm. what is a possible prognosis for that, and what should be done next?
