Can anyone share their experiences with an indwelling Pleurx catheter? Dear Husband had one placed rather urgently 6 weeks ago after two prior thoracentesis procedures about 3 weeks apart. The amount being drained 3x a week was going down for a while and is now trending upwards. Oncologist says that even when systemic treatment is working, the body can continue to create the effusions, requiring the drain to stay in long term. I'm a bit overwhelmed by that thought and would like to hear from others who have walked this walk.
