My father has stage 3b small cell lung cancer. He also has an infection in his lung and mainly in his chest wall, and it will not go away. The surgeons have put tubes thru the side of his chest 3 times now to remove the fluid in there. He has been on so many types of antibiotics, and nothing will help. Now the incisions in his side from the tubes are not wanting to heal either, and just keep seeping. They hve tols him he cannot have chemotherapy due to this infection. Sya it will hurt his immune system too bad, and the infection will take over.
