My mom (diagnosed with NSCLC, adenocarcinoma, Stage IV)has had to have fluid (thoracenticis) drained several times since her diagnosis several weeks ago. The fluid on the last one was more bloody. What does this indicate? Also there has been talk of pleuradecis. Someone I know said her dad had this and was angry about it because it lessened his quality of life because it was harder to breathe. Anyone else have personal experience with this procedure? Thanks, Jill
