ursol Posted October 12, 2007 Share Posted October 12, 2007 I was diagnosed today with Pericardial Effusion yet I have not yet spoken with my oncologist so I'm learning about this from the internet. I have been short of breath and was sent for a CT Scan Wednesday and then they saw some fluid around my heart so I was sent for an Echocardiogram today. They said I need to go for another Echocardiogram next week to track if the fluid gets worse. I am trying not to panic but it is difficult to deal with something else. I can only hope that the fluid around the heart is not cancerous. Anyone that has had experience with this and can give me some hope and insight I would appreciate it.
