This is Dr. David

do you mean kidney failure or kindness failure?

I am sorry his legs have swollen up

this can be caused by his kidney failure or liver failure.

if his kidneys are not working, he might need dialysis to help clean his blood if his kidneys are not working.

has his doctors talked to him about treatment for his early stage lung cancer?

or talked to him about dialysis for his kidneys?
