My husband was recently dx’d with stage 4 lung ca due to metastatic pleural effusion, of which he has a permanent chest tube in place with approx 600 ml drained every other day. Due to stage 3 kidney failure and cardiomyopathy, no treatments are being done at this time. He has begun having night sweats. What does this mean? He is a dm II but bs are controlled.

Hi falans,

Welcome to GRACE. I am sorry to hear of your husbands recent diagnosis. About night sweats, you might find this old thread on cancergrace, which has responses from some of the doctors here helpful:

10/2015 Chest xray found a nodule as part of a physical (no symptoms).
01/2016 Upper left lobe lingula preserving lobectomy stage 2b for 1.9 cm invasive adenocarcinoma with additional 2 mm AIS nodule found in pathology.
03-05/2016 Sixteen weeks of adjuvant cisplatin/vinorelbine.
07/2016 Durvalumab adjuvant clinical trial discontinued after 1st dose knocked out thyroid.
12/2016 Revised to stage 1b (due to VPI) after new guidelines for multifocal lepidic lung cancer.
07/2019 Next scan.
