Good morning all. I received a call Friday from my Onco Nurse, she said he and pulmonary doc discussed my CT and the issue with my pleural efflusion not improving since the 8 weeks I habe been off Taxotere. Their consensus is I have a Para Mallignant Efflusion, since none of my lung fluid has ever showed the presence of cancer cells. They say 50% of the time the lab cannot find cells. I'm am now going to start Cisplatin this coming Friday, and every Friday going forward. the expectation if the Cisplatin works the the fluid should fix itself.
Wish me luck
