I'm sorry Robert has chronic pleural inflammation that requires periodic drainage. Is Pleurodesis the procedure his doctor is considering? This is the procedure that obliterates the pleural space to prevent pleural effusion from reaccumulation. What is the reason, underlying cause of the fluid accumulation?

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
