worried daughter

hi I'm wondering if anybody can give me some advice.... I'm worried about my dad 😕 just before Christmas his bone on his chest under his breast stuck out for no reason (no knocks or bangs) just all of a sudden popped out which was clear to see.. it because painful to him... 3 weeks ago he got a strange looking abscess where the binr is sticking out.. which has now burst weeping blood and puss and looks like some sort of small brain sticking out 😓 which he has dressings for to keep it clean... 5 weeks ago he went for xrays which have now shown up he has a dark shadow under his rib cage ... he's going to hospital Thursday for results... im very worried this could be bad news, can anybody please advise me on what this could be please

Hello noodles123 .

I am so sorry about your dad's distressing circumstances. How awful for all of you. I wish I could offer some insight as to what it is, but unfortunately I haven't any idea. It seems like the hospital are running tests and hopefully you will get to the bottom of this very soon. I know how very difficult it is to see your dad in such discomfort. I really hope they can find the cause and help him feel better very soon.

Thinking of you and your dad.
