My Dr. says that I may have to have this procedure done. I understand the principal of how it works but would like to know how it makes you feel afterwards. Does it restrict your breathing in any way? Does it actually work? My breathing is allready restricted from the pleural effusion (fluid build up). Will they be able to get rid of the cancer cells in my lung by getting rid of the effusion? Am I looking at periodic Chemo the rest of my life? It seems as though the Doctors have pre-programed responses to these questions and, of course, it doesn't allways work out the way they say.
