sclc coming back?

In January I was diagnosed with extensive sclc in my right lung. The tumor had attached to my heart and drained fluid into my heart sac. I had that drained, then had radiation and chemo.My last chemo was in early august. My next scan was mid Sept. and I was told that I was in remission. I have recently had some pain in my chest. X-rays and cat scan showed that I had some fluid in my lung. The Dr. drained the fluid in his office and ran labs on it. Today I find out that I have cancer cells in the fluid. I will have to go thru more chemo and probably have my lung drained again and have a chemical injected to close the gap between the 2 linings in the lung, to prevent the fluid from coming back. Has anyone had this happen to them before and what were the results?

I am sorry you have not received an answer to your question, I was just wondering how you were doing and if they took care of the fluid? I did have plural effusion but when they draind the fluid there were no cells so I can't help you with what is next. please post and let us know how you are doing.

Thank you for your concern. I did do a follow up posting under a different subject heading. It was on 1-22 and the subject was, When is it O.K. for someone to tell you, you have nothing between your ears? Please check it out and R.S.V.P.
