Thoracentesis

I haven’t posted since Sunday because I was hospitalized for shortness of breath. I underwent a procedure called thoracentesis which entails a long needle into the affected lung to draw off fluid. The doctor withdrew about three liters of fluid which indicated a possible infection. Now I am home and taking daily antibiotics to combat the infection. The procedure made breathing easier and has left my chest sore. The fluid collected in the right lower lobe of my lungs which is the usually spot. The procedure took only about ten minutes and was largely painless. I am going to cross it off my bucket list.
