1) Please understand as mentioned by the symptoms your father is still suffering from some kind of lung issue highly likely that to be an infection, since we donot have the previous records it will be difficult to understand what was the issue, but most probably doctors must have suspected pneumonia and treated him with antibiotic as per local practice but given that the symptoms have persisted he definitely need further detailed investigation to find the cause of the problem so that the treatment can be changed accordingly, a sputum culture, Chest Ct scan, bronchoscopy and biopsy may have been advised, it will be difficult to diagnose correctly without teats, so please consult a good pulmonologist and follow their advice for prompt diagnosis and treatment.
