So my father had a massive heart attack on the 15th of October, after going to the nurse two days before and she sent him home saying nothing was wrong with him even though his blood test came back as abnormal. He had a stent fitted immediately, and went to hospital. He ended up in intensive care and we were told that he only had 2 hours to live, but the oxygen helped him and he started to recover. He was recovering well until 27th of October he got he became really ill and it turns out he had gotten pneumonia and another several infections on top of that. He was rushed into intensive care again on the 28th, delirious and the liquid in his lungs wont fully go properly, and he was put into an induced coma as his body was too weak by itself and he had not slept for two weeks so he was hallucinating, it also turns out he has a blood clot in his heart, his lung collapsed and his kidneys are failing. The doctor said usually after a heart attack after over 2 weeks the heart would at least repair a tiny bit, but the echo shows that his heart has not slightly recovered at all. Of course he's really close to dying but is there any chance that his certain position at the moment he could live? Will his kidneys and lungs be able to repair themselves if they got rid of the pneumonia and how easy is pneumonia to treat? If so how many days would it take before they could wake him from the coma and he could start to breathe better and start recovering? Sorry for the many questions but there are some questions the doctors just wont answer as they aren't supposed to. He is only 56 years old. Too young to go like this.
