How many times can they drain fluid with this method? They've done it twice to my mom in the past 5 days. She has colon cancer, but is in the ICU due to a myriad of conditions. I will post this question on the lung board too, but am interested in knowing how much of this they can do.

My Dad had it done twice. It didn't go away until Chemo. Not sure how many times they can do it. Hope your Mom gets better soon.
