hello, my dad has done a polypoctamey about 40 days ago, since he got out of the operation, he stayed 3 days in the intensive care in good health on the fourth day he got hypoxia, they put him on oxygen mask, after 1 week negotiating if its a heart problem or lung, they discovered that he has lung fibrosis and that he has infection, so he stayed on the mask for about a month during this time he used a treatment called sebab, however he was getting better as he has been in the hospital for 45 days, 4 days ago he got fever then the saturation in his blood went down to 60% on 100% oxygen mask, so they put him on the sebab for a whole day until his heart down part stopped working, then they put him on ventilator with high sedation, after that they discovered that he has kidney and liver failure, my question is what is the probability of him coming out of this, also if you need any xray or reports I have it here and I can send it, I forgot to mention that yesterday his WBCs went upto 39000

Hi and welcome to HCM.
As a specialist,i can understand your anxiety.
You should've written his age and present treatment being received.
Anyway,your dad has a multi-organ systemic failure,according to you.
Now one needs to see all the blood reports and present condition on ventilator,to be able to give an expert opinion.
You may send all the reports to me as a direct question,in my name.
