In November, they put in a PleurX catheter in my lung to help with the gathering liquid. Since then, I have not been able to draw much liquid at all. Since my PET scan showed vast improvement last April, it was decided that the catheter can be removed.
Yesterday, it was taken out. It was just an outpatient procedure.
I remember last November, when they had just put it in, I told myself, this will not stay long. I want to swim in the summer. Guess what, folks... I'll be in a bathing suit before long.
