My father was admitted to the hospital this past Saturday. He had knee surgery after sustaining a fall after coming from his cruise. He developed a blood clot and pneumonia. This is his second bout of pneumonia in three or four months. When he was in the emergency room we were told it was pneumonia, a blood clot, and a questionable mass. On Sunday I was told that the charge doctor says the mass is questionable and looks suspicious. Yet on Monday the Lung Specialist who is coincidentally his sleep apnea doctor says it is pneumonia. We are going to get a second opinion to be cautious. I have been reading several post and most say that is is pneumonia or another infection. Of course I am anxious and I am doing much research as possible. Is this fairly normal that a questionable mass is pneumonia or another lung infection? Or could the 'questionable mass" contribute to the pneumonia? Thank you for reading and for any following information.
