Has anyone had talc pleurodesis? I would like to hear of your experience.
Why you opted for this procedure? Was it painful? Was it successful?
My third round with Lung Cancer includes pleural malignancy. I have a pleural drain and undergo daily drainage. It's been 3 months and it's not drying up and the lining is not readhering to my lung. It has been suggesting that the talc pleurodesis might resolve this issue.
I am currently under treatment using a new targeted treatment drug and we are experiencing wonderful results with the reduction of the tumor. However, the pleural fluid continues to build. I've had a Denver drain for over 3 months.
I would appreciate hearing about first hand experience.
