Well we got the news today and we now have fluid around the left lung and we have to wait a week to get it drained. We have to wait because the blood thinners have to be stopped before they will do the procedure. Just another step. Anyone ever had this procedure done and what should we expect? Thanks Brandy

it is a fairly routine and easy procedure. THey put a tube in and drain out the bad fluid adn after a couple of days they take out tube and thats it. THis will help ease pain and make breathing easier. they will check fluid for cancer cells also so don't be too scared of results.
