Colon Cancer With Possible Metastasis

I am inquiring on behalf of my sister-in-law who was diagnosed with stage three colon and rectal cancer in July 2020. She is 53 years old and a former smoker. She underwent chemotherapy for six months, followed by six weeks of radiation, and in April 2020 she had surgery to remove the tumor in her sigmoid. At that time, 17 od her lymph nodes were removed and all were clear, so she was restaged to stage two.

PleurX catheter causing new pain

I'm writing here for my mom, who is 90 and unable to participate directly. While her lung cancer is in remission, she has CHF and had a PleurX catheter placed a little over two months ago for right-side pleural effusion. At first, it caused significant enough pain that we considered removing it and returning to regular thoracentesis procedures, but the pain largely subsided after about a week. The pain returned a bit under a week ago and has been quite bad. Her cardiologist's presumption is that it slipped one way or another and is now in a troublesome position.
