I am 46 year old male and suffering from fibrosis of lung (left lung destroyed) since last 20 years. For this reason infection dose occur once or two in a year and during this time I use to take bedridden due to fever, whole body pain, severe cough with bad smell. This time only one antibiotic under livofloxecin hydrochloride group is taken by me. Now my question - is there any suitable way to get out from this disease permanently?

If other lung is normal, and you are physically fit for operation, then left pneumonectomy can be done. As your age is 46 only, and you are repeatedly having lung infection, you should consult a thoracic surgeon in good center for lt pneumonectomy.
