How old are you? Since when you're suffering from this condition? Pseudomonas Infection is multi-drug resistant. Heart failure or anaemia or poor immunity status also may present like this.

Pseudomonas treated with Cefoperazone and Sulbactam, Piperacillin Tazobactam or Meropenem or Imipenem etc.

For heart failure, you may have to get it done angiography with stenting. please consult your Cardiologist he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
