Yesterday, my husband had his third paracentesis. Upon each visit, the doctor drained what they say is their maximum safe amount of six vacuum bottles of fluid. The nurse said that each bottle equals about two and a half pounds. I would appreciate the input of the group regarding their experiences with this particular procedure. How do you normally schedule them? How often can they do them and how often is safe to undergo this procedure? Do you check your loved ones weight and girth before and after these procedures and if so, do you find it helpful? In what way? Believe me, I have more questions and I could go on, but I know that everybody in this group must be exhausted daily, so I will stop here. Any help you could offer will be much appreciated.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
