Mom got admitted this morning beacuse of RT Lung had a liter and a half of fluid sched. for the talc procedure on late Mon., however Lung surgeon said the fluid has to be removed before we could do the surg. so he numbed up the RT area and proceeded to put a drain in her lung and stitch it up with this drain in there to be suctioned til mon.
When doc left the nurse came in and gave her something in her port, she got real dizzy and fell asleep and now on percocet every 4hrs til monday.
Is this proceedure typical somebody please help me understand this.
The nurse said she is going to do so much better.
Doc says the tumors are not allowing the lungs to drain there blocking it thats why she is filling up.
Coud somebody shed some light on this for me please im just so worried about Mom and what to expect next.
Thanks your input.
