Malignant pleural effusion with lung cancer

Pleural catheter installed two weeks ago. Pet scan lit him up like a Christmas tree December 27th. Trouble breathing and tight chest December 4th. Thought heart attack....x-rays showed the fluid around his right lung. Non smoker. They want to start xgena soon. The bone mets are everywhere. Spine, ribs, right hip many nodes. Hasn't had a cough or cold forever. Blindsided.
