I saw my oncologist yesterday and he has arranged for me to have fluid drained from my abdomen tomorrow. I have been in awful pain for weeks and he wants me to have the fluid drained before restarting my chemo which was stopped just before Christmas when I was very sick
I am really nervous about having the drain put it
Is it very painful. I'm sure many of you will have had it done. I feel such a coward and have had so much surgery and chemo without this stress. I think it is cos just a local anaesthetic.
What is it like. Hope you can help.
So scared today. I go in at 10am tomorrow and sure I won't sleep a wink tonight.
Thanks for any replies.
