Pleural Effusion

Posted , 7 users are following.

I just dont know what to do ..please pray for me. Today i went to have stress test, echo, and ultra sound because of the heart palpitations ive been having. Now i just lost my sister last week and hearing this has torn me to pieces. The dr. came in and said that hes sending me to a specialist Pulmunary doctor because of the pleural effusion surrounding the lungs. I am so terrified.

    Mary, my sister was told she has sarcoidosis, they put her thru all kinds of tests even lung biopsy and she doesn’t have it. So don’t panic. It’ll probably turn out to be another mystery ailment like all the other crazy symptoms we get during peri. 

    Will keep you in my prayers.

      This means fluid around the lungs in the chest area. I pray Suzanne that its nothing behind it. I have to stay positive.

      I wont be attending my sister funeral because i feel its too much for me.

      I really appreciate all the support on this forum.

      When do you go back to the doctor to get more answers?

      We had a funeral that a family member was unable to attend.  And someone used their ipad on facetime so that person could watch the funeral as it happened..... sorry if that sounds silly but it did work out wonderfully 

      Still praying for you!

    Breathe deep you come out of this.

    I'm so sorry about this. I also lost mine a few years back and it was very sad.

    We are here for you, prayers.
