Thanks for your reply.
The respiratory symptoms started way back in 2006/2007. We had consulted a lot of Dr in our home town, where they told that she has tb or some other disease. After taking tb medicines for few days her condition deteriorated and later she was admitted to hospital. For two years after that i.e, 2007-2008 she was under homeopathy treatment which subsided her arthritis and lung problem but slowly the medicine became unresponsive and she was almost bedridden with swollen fingers and cough. We had lost all hope then but by grace of GOD, we consulted a physician Dr S K Mishra who started with his medicine and told us that he has to give some steroid to make her back on her feet. (You can see his prescription in the documents attached earlier.
Later in the year 2012 July onward she is with me here in Bangalore and but suddenly the medicine of Dr Mishra too became unresponsive so we consulted a Pulmonologist Dr Rajashekar here in Bangalore and he made my mother admitted in Malya hospital twice for his treatment (once in July and then in NOv 2013) and from where (please see his prescription attached earlier).
However, because of her hip problem we got her admitted in Apollo this year in Jan and she got operated with total hip replacement. In the follow up after her total hip replacement we also consulted renowned pulmonologist Dr Ravindra Mehta and Rhematologist Dr Pradeep Kumar in Apollo.
the current medicines as mentioned in my earlier email has been prescribed by these Dr and she is continuing with those sine 27th Jan 2014.
Now, answering your question about chest xray. Yes there have been several occasion when her chest xray has been taken (very recently in jan 2014) also she has done an MRI scan in july 2013 which clearly shows some disease of lungs which reports have been attached before.
Hope this helps.
Let me know if you have any other query.
