Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern. I have gone through the reports you have attached (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Honestly speaking, she is having irreversible diseases. Her lung functions are not good, similarly, pulmonary artery hypertension is also bad. She is having fixed spinal deformity so it is impossible to revert this with drugs. So the best treatment for her would be home oxygen therapy along with other drugs. She can take Tadalafil along with Bosentan for better control of PAH (pulmonary artery hypertension). Do let me know if she is already taking home oxygen. I will be happy to help you further. Wishing good health to your mother.
