Malignant Pleural Effusion


Recommended Posts

Goodafternoon everyone,


My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer 2 months ago. The way she was diagnosed was through a ct scan and shes had fluid build-up in her right pleural space, shes been on chemotherapy therapy for 3 rounds now. And the fluid has not stopped accumulating. It still has a reddish blood appearance. When I drain it through her pleurx cath. Just wanted to know how and when this will subside. Thank you.
