Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
To be frank it is not a case for radiation, still any thing can happen, by time, you may improve naturally in the mean time, We always live with hope, and give hope, to save the patient.
Take fresh juice of palatable vegetables, 2 times a day. take green leafy vegetables, pulses, sprouts, and protein rich foods, to improve the blood and resistance and to control the dyspnea.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
