I am sorry Wayne that nobody has responded to this. There are people out there but I suspect a lot of people do the same as me......
I just click on 'latest posts' and read the first few pages.

Here's hoping. Will also keep bumping it up for a while.
hi wayne, im not sure but it may be an initial inflamatory action the body is having to having the glue inserted and may settle down. i would however encourage you to call your breast care nurse and talk over your concerns as she is there for you as well. take care
just trying too get some paciffic info really, my maryanne before chemo started, her lung was being drained every 5-6 days i think 3 times in all ,and there was a cough and like a rasping noise she said when breathing and a shortage of breath, anyway mid september started taking xeloda and since then coughing has stopped, the rasping noise have stopped (not that i could hear it)! always short of breath well when it came too exserting yourself and 3 1/2 months down the line i.e. last thursday had another lung drain i think you call it plearal eefusion and then they glued it, so the fluids took that long too build again rather than days but the onc says xeloda is a slower working chemo!! but the thing is she seems worse now i.e. short of breath since it was glued so please called any ladies that have had this done please comment on the after effects of gluing , do it get better? stay the same? is this as good as it gets? sorry too be a pain just a little worried oh by the way when they put the glue in maryanne was in real pain is this the norm? thankyou so much for your time,
