I'm a 60 yr old woman who recently had a bout of asthmatic bronchitis and pneumoni<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>. (presumably viral as 3 other coworkers had the same thing) because the chest x-ray indicated a possible nodule, a CT was ordered.

Your problems are serious. The pneumoni<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> is likely to be a non-infectious pneumoni<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>. This may possibly be related to your asthma. It could be an allergic pneumonia. You need to see a pulmonary specialist, without delay. You should talk with your doctor about this. Request a referral to a good pulmonary specialist. being treated every time with antibiotics will not help if the pneumonia is cause by something other than an infection.

all the information I gathered from doctors, the web and persons such as you, leave me to believe that there is no reason why certain people develop fluid or breathing difficulties.

In the meanwhile, some patients having been drained 2 or 3 times, never get it again and are fine. Others may get it a few more times, but I was told it eventually goes away after proper care. Wish me luck!
His heart is fine the nurses said that he is recovering well. He didn’t even have to be on a heart <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> machine. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> someone please provide me with some information on how long he will suffer with his lungs?

Her recovery has gone really well, but the only thing keeping her there now is the fact that she still has fluid dr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ining from her wound and still needs tubes to aid the drainage.
