My DM has fluid on her lungs. She has had them sucked out 3 times in the last month by a procedure called a Thorocentisis. The Pulmanary doctor said it was usually cancer that causes the fluid. All of the tests from the fluid have come back neg for cancer and neg for pneumonia. Has anybody had this or been around anything like this? Mom is on oxygen now at home and it seems like we are just waiting around for her lungs to fill up so we can have them sucked out again. I looked stuff up on the internet and asked her lung Dr if maybe she should go see a heart Dr. "Oh, yea..that wouldn't hurt., he said. WHY WON'T ANYONE TELL ME WHAT WE SHOULD DO NEXT! Is this what the medical system has come to? Where are the DR House's of the world? Doesn't anyone care about people anymore? I'm not a doctor. It has fallen on my shoulders as my parents main caregiver to research this and plot our next move and I don't know what to do! Whew! I just took a breath and realized where I went..sorry, but I feel better now getting that off my chest! So, if anyone knows anything about this and has any suggestions as to what my next move may be or what maybe causing this, I would appreciate your help. Anyway, Thanks for listening.
