Okay so this post is not for me it’s for my father in law. He’s currently getting treatment for a blood infection as he has pneumonia (fluid) in one of his lungs and doctors have said that it’s too small to operate on or drain and so they have him on intravenous antibiotics. Before he got back to the hospital his blood infection levels were around 490 but they’ve gotten it down to 75 and it doesn’t seem to be going any lower and they don’t know why. He also has swollen hands and feet and his hands are really sore. Does anyone please know what may be causing this as the doctors are stuck and he's been in the hospital for 2 months now and we don't now what to do. If you need any further information please ask.
