Has anyone developed PE's or fluid in lung or pleural space as a result of long term chemo? I developed 3 PE's around the first of the year, and dissolved by taking Xarelto. Over the last 3 weeks I had 1500 ML drained, and had a Pleur X drain inserted last Thursday. 2000 ML was drained then, followed by 500 ML on Saturday and 300 ML tonight. It's weird, the tumors and lymph nodes are dead and gone, I feel pretty good, even able to go to the gym with the drain in. I'm worried this is the beginning of the downward spiral.
Hope someone has something to share.
