Has anyone here had pleural effusion and had to have it drained? How do they do it? Is it painful? Do you have to stay overnight in the hospital? Did it help you with your breathing once it was done?
I have started having trouble breathing and the last xray a few weeks ago showed that I now have pleual effusion, so, I am thinking I might have to have this done. I see my onco next week.
I would appreciate any and all info you can give me, good and bad, so, I could be prepared if I have to have it done.
Thank you so much,
