Hi everyone, I'm asking this question as I'm worried about my dad... he's had 2 lots of pneumonia over the past 2 years, and the last one he had sepsis too back in September, he beat that but it did leave him with an irregular heartbeat,. Which he now takes medication to thin the blood more... he's also been diagnosed with copd 18months ago. He's pretty well in himself but since the sepsis his breathing got worse? He's fine when he's resting but gets breathless when walking or going upstairs...he went back to the doctors a few weeks back who sent him for a chest X-ray which showed some fluid in the lower part of his lung, they gave him antibiotics and he's got to go for a follow up ct scan next week... he had a sputum test which came back fine, also his blood tests came back ok for his liver and kidneys but something showed up regarding inflammation? Has anyone experienced something similar? He's worrying himself about cancer, and ive googled way too much, any advise would be greatly appreciated? Many thanks a very worried daughter
