I had to skip 2 of my Cisplatin treatments while having to return to St. Louis as my dad passed away. Recent CT shows an increase in my of fluid in both pleural spaces. A drain will relieve my increases SOB, buyy Oncologist main concern is no cancer cells present in the fluid. I'm not too worried as I have already had 7 fluid samples sent to the lab and no cells present.

Ive been off the site for awhile and hope all of my buds are doing well.

Best

    Mike...Prayers and good MOJO

    I am sorry to hear of your Dad passing. My deepest condolences on his passing.

    Extra prayers on the lung tap. I had my lung collapsed twice, years ago, and they had to punch into the pleural cell to inflate. They used a tube just larger than 3/8" to inflate and removed all the fluid. Yours will be much better and easier, but extra prayers just 'caus we can....... Big MOJO TOO.
