Hey my grandpa has this and I would like an estimate on his chances of survival in % he has kidney problems and has been on dialyses multiple times so i hope hell be ok.
normally, it can be healed even in elderly. But, the most important thing is the auto-immunity and what kind of pathogen cause pneumonia. you should ask the doctor. I am afraid the doctor can't say anything sure about this. just wait and see. doctor can give you medication ,but he is no god.
