I am at stage 4 copd and I keep getting cases of pneumonia and the infections are always in the same place: the lower lobe of my right lung. My left lung is never infected.
My fevers get dangerously high: the last one was 106.5F.
I would like the portion of my right lung that keeps getting infected removed surgically.
Why would the doctor object to lung reduction surgery? It seems to me the fevers are too high and extremely dangerous.
