Hi, this Dr Ansari. Welcome to JustAnswer. Yes, you can chat here.
Ah ok, that's good. How he is doing? Your father was moderate to severe but CT chest was showing all the CORONA signs. While recovering, it's likely you can expect to experience prolonged fatigue, cough and even shortness of breath, And these prolonged symptoms can go on for several weeks.
Yes it is as he is on oxygen, how much oxygen he is taking
Similar to anyone recovering from a severe inflammatory response within his or her lungs, a severe case of COVID-19 that's characterized by ARDS has the potential to cause long-term lung damage.
In addition, evidence is emerging that some people are prone to developing cardiomyopathy several weeks after recovering from COVID-19.
Talking about your father he is a fighter and even though on oxygen he is maintaining good saturation so the expected outcome is promising but as I mentioned doctors have to look for the development of ARDS and Cardiomyopathy. These are if develop is a bad sign and show a bad prognosis, I am sure the doctors there must be doing all their efforts that he may stay away from these two complications.
You are most welcome
Your positive feedback is highly appreciatable.
