الجواب حامداومصليا

Due to your illness if you are unable to fast or if you fast it would increase your illness then the Shari'ah permits that you do not fast. Rather, once you get better you make up those fasts you have missed.

منها المرض اذا خاف علي نفسه التلف أوذهاب عضو يفطر بالاجماع وان خاف زيادة العلة وامتداده فكذالك عندنا وعليه القضاء اذا أفطر كذافي المحيط
