    Jenny Steel got a reaction from Tom Galli in Malignant pleural effusion   
    My husband was diagnosed Stage4a with MPE in  January 2020 ...the MPE was actually there in early December.  He underwent thoracentesis (draining) at least three times a week then an indwelling pleural catheter was installed at the end of January.  His MPE actually dried up about two weeks ago...apparently that can happen with frequent draining through a catheter.  It’s great because the MPE was causing him lots of grief.  He is not on treatment yet ..expect immunotherapy to start in a couple of weeks.  His latest CT scan and bone scan shows no mets elsewhere.  We saw the stats you reference but we don’t believe they reflect today’s treatments.
