My mother is 63 years old. She is having severe cough from more than a year, and last year, she was admitted to the hospital. The doctors gave O2 therapy and BiPAP for four months, and she was fine for few months. Again, the severe cough along with sputum started. Recently, the doctor did some tests and gave medication, but she still has a cough and water collection in her legs. It seems that there is some problem with her heart as well. I have attached the current medication along with recent reports. Her oxygen levels are around 70, and BP is around 150 to 160 mmHg. Her sugar levels are under control. Currently, we are giving oxygen by using the concentrator machine. Her condition is still not getting improved. Please let me know her prognosis. How to get her cured? Thank you.
