Anyone have pleural effusion after 4 months, already been on antibiotics (three rounds), steriods and inhaler. Also had a clear CT Scan (no lesions or scarring or anything detected). Blood tests all normal. But still this fluid persists and mild chest pain from the effusion. Going Tuesday to have the fluid drained and sent to pathology......terrified from reading that most of these pleural effusions are Exudative and 60% of those are malignant (cancers). Just wondering if anyone has been through this for this long and already had the fluid drained? Was your pathology normal or ????? UGH. So stressful.
