So scared! My sister has been in the hospital for over a week. Her initial diagnosis was pleural effusion. They extracted close to a gallon of liquid from the lining (pleura). The test results to identify treatment are not complete yet since markers will be identified for special treatment which hopefully won’t be chemo. Pet scan has been ordered to make sure it’s not metastasized outside the lung and pleural cavity. Appointment with oncologist specialist on Thursday.
Any feedback from this group will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
