Shortest of updates – chemical pleuradhesis (germanstickyuppydrug pumped in) was carried out this afternoon. Wont lie, it was rather painful and not very nice. My daddy was here, A arrived straight after work, and dear mother staying the night. Took a while to get on top of the pain but am much more comfortable now. A couple of hours or so of constant morphine juggling, that first moment of being able to relax after muscles had been shaking and tense was just so nice, I reveled in it!
Drain now unclamped to allow fluid (plus bleeding caused by tiny agitated lung wall being so furious) to escape. Just so to clarify, this type of procedure is not the gluing that prevents transplant, it is a much more natural but therefore crude version. Please all think extremely sticky thoughts, the stickiest you can, as there is only 50% success rate with this procedure and don’t particularly want to do this again any time in the near future.
