After some advice please. My mum had a hernia operation a week ago Monday, all went well, she was discharged the day after. As soon as she came out of surgery she had a cough, and had to be on oxygen. Cough gradually got worse, and I could hear her chest 'rattling' when she was breathing. I called a doctor out to her today, and the doctor diagnosed a bad chest infection and pneumonia. She's 75, not in the best of her at the best of times (takes blood pressure tablets and warfrin amonst others). Am I right in being very concerned? She has been given amoxicillin, steriods and a enhaler. Doctor doesnt 'feel she needs to be in hosptial at the moment' . Can anyone give me any advice? I'm very worried,
