Help please: Sister's lungs compromised, infection, fungus?
Good evening, Im not sure if I am able to get help through here but I want to share my sister in law story and hope someone could help. My sister in law started feeling sick she had a cold and shortness of breath then went to the ER in Hollywood FL at Memorial Regional Hospital, they sent her home with antibiotics I believe then the same night she had to go back because she couldn’t breath the had to put a tube on her mouth to help her breath. They believed she had the influenza type b they started giving her medications to help her with Fever and symptoms, she was a little better she was sedated for 2 days then they said she developed a staph bacteria and she didn’t have the flu anymore or at least it wasn’t showing they started treating her for the staph got better then got worse the next day. Then they suggested for her to be put on the ECHMO which is a machine that functions as her lungs…she did great was able to get up took the tube out of her mouth for a day, we were so happy; that night her oxygen dropped got so bad that she hasn’t been able to recover and they had to put the oxygen back with the tube and pralized her and 2 days later she still like this. They think now is a fungus, the staph is gone but she is not getting better. When we asked why they don’t know still trying to figure it out. We are desperate, we want another specialist to see her…how can I make this happen? I heard Mayo clinic is great for lung and respiratory disease. Can someone help.? Thank you
