in the right side, there is no effusion. on the left side, the lungs are obscured by breast shadow, but there is very good expansion of the lungs. the recent chest xray needs to be compared with the old xray. do you have the old xray?
if you have it, can you please send it?
there is still moderate pleural effusion on the left side.
dear Maz, you have to initiate the call.
how is your breathing now?
there should be am icon to make a call
I am ok to type
the pleural effusion is still significant. it might need tapping.
are you been seen by a chest doctor?
I am not allowed to do that
it should get absorbed, but it is significant and it has to be followed up.
if it is improving then it is good.
but need follow up with a chest physician
good. 2 weeks should be alright
it should happen. you will need repeat xrays
no one can guarantee whether the fluid will be fully reabsorbed. we have to wait and watch. if not reabsorbed then it has to be tapped and hence you need follow up with respiratory
you are asking the same questions.
if it is a Para pneumonia effusion then it indicates an effusion due to infection. so it can become infected.
so good. don't confuse yourself.
go as what the doctors say. it's very difficult to say precisely. as of now , yiu look well. hopefully the fluid will be fully reabsorbed. we have to wait and watch.
i hope it gets reabsorbed
not life threatening
it is getting better slowly. it takes several weeks for the fluid to reabsorb
we are here to help and advise you.
yes you can and you must
thanks. there is a massive improvement.
so in the next few weeks, the fluid should improve
Let's not overthink. The plural fluid seems to be absorbing well. You might not need The procedure at all
I am also very happy for you, hope I have answered all your questions satisfactorily. You take care now and all the very best
