sophiesdaughter Posted August 16, 2008 Share Posted August 16, 2008 My Mom has been on Tarceva for 2 months, and although the brain CT scan showed some reduction in brain mets, we just found out that she now has increased pleural effusion which is causing shortness of breath, and the largest nodule has increased slightly... Her oncologist has requested that she get the fluid drained, but said that it will return and her situation will only get worse. I would love to hear people's experience with pleural effusion, how it was treated, the symptoms, etc. Thanks, Rana Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
