My brother got the all clear from his lung cancer last November after months of treatment , he became short of breath last week and Saturday I talked him into letting me get him to A & E , the first thought was severe lung infection , later that night he was found to have pneumonia , he was put on antibiotics and fluid and taken to a ward , the next morning we were told he had been moved to the critical care unit , Sunday night they tried to slow his heart rate as it was to fast , his heart stopped and they had to shock him back , he was on a ventilator with face mask , last night his breathing deteriorated and he had to be sedated and a tube inserted to help him breath , I'm so worried now that he may not make it , has anyone out there had any experience of this and survived , I need some hope . Many thanks Angie
