In brief: When all else fails

Surgery is considered when the condition does not respond to medical therapy, or when it starts to cause bleeding in the lungs.
Or if it begins to cause constant infections in the lung tissue.

In brief: Coughing blood?

Surgery is most indicated when someone has a cavity of fungus that erodes into the lung tissue and causes coughing up of blood.
Sometimes we do surgery when the fungus infection is refractory to abx.
