my son had a spontaneous pneumothorax at 17 which left him with scar tissue on the lung - his physical weakness is always his lung. He is now 23. His student digs this year have been horrible - damp and dirty conditions and he has developed a chronic infection, that has been ongoing for months and no amount of antibiotics are helping. He has been referred to a consultant but presently we don't know if he has anything more worrying than a propensity for lung infections - however now he is coming home I am at a loss as to know what I might do, if anything, by way of home treatment - that can help him get stronger. I realise, rest and a clean house will be the surest things - but wondered if anyone had any tips for a worried a mother to offer the boy. Thank you in advance. Heather
