pleural effusions

Posted By: Karl Schwartz

Joanne is feeling good with 250cc of antineoplaston A10 every 6 hours.
She's determined not to look for progress by self examination, so only the CT scans will tell if treatment is working to reduce lymphoma. Dr. Ratna in Houston said that Joanne's condition is stabilized -- that in itself makes it all worth it.

I looked up info on pleural effusions and found what appears to be the best scenario for the cause: "impaired pleural lymphatic drainage from mediastinal tumor, and not due to direct pleural invasion." Since all other signs (labs, no sweats, reduced lymph glands) are good, can we assume impaired drainage to be the problem, or are there other possible causes? Can it be caused by break-up of tumors from treatment?

(I Almost wish I didn't look up this info.)

Anyhow, assuming the cause to be impaired lymphatic drainage, here are my questions:

Can this clear up by itself?
Can diet, supplements, herbs, mild exercise, heat, cold, heat/cold, gentle massage help?
If lymphoma continues to respond to treatment, will effusion respond too, or are these exclusive conditions.

Thanks in advance,
