I fill he needs more medications to help him breath better. His pulmonologist place him on new medicaments to help him. He could not take the corticoids because his BP got very high. so he stopped taking it.
tomorrow he had his second visit to pulmonologist who was going to run some test.
he did not make it to tomorrow. He had to be rushed to hospital.

How is this surgery and what are the risks at his age?
