My grandfather is suffering from urine infection

Hi, My grandfather is 90 years old, he is suffering from urine infection he is using a pipe to pass urine from past 50 years, but suddenly he started passing blood doctors say he has blood clots in his bladder, after Ct scan they found out he has a boil kind of thing near his prostate and thats causing him blood clots..... but due to high intake of medicines has led him to stomach infection causing vomiting, dehydration , chest congestion,.... he's under treatment since 20 days ,.... he is very strong , his heart , pulse bp, everything was normal until now,..... we have changed 4 hospitals due to no proper guidance,... Now he has come to state where there is water in his lungs, his kidney is malfunctioned(has only one kidney) ans no urine has passed from 2 days..... he's been put on a ventilator and diagnosis is been done today but still no recovery..... tomorrow again their are going to do diagnosis so that urine passes,.... Kindly guide me on the right track how can i save him,... he has a strong heart , he is conscious he responds by knocking his head.... please tell me what can we do to make him pass urine. Thank you

Hi.. The history is in the favour of urinary tract infection with renal failure with pulmonary oedema.. This in simple terms means urine infection that has affected the kidney reducing its functions which has inturn caused fluid accumulation in the lungs.. The present treatment of ventilatory support, antibiotics (those that does not hamper with the kidney functions may have to be used),  medications to remove the fluids from the lungs  and dialysis to improve kidney functions are essential..

Occasionally the kidney functions may improve with the present mode of treatment and he can continue with the catheter. However there are possibilities that it may not improve and would need continuos dialysis..
