ReBecca, fluid does not mean the end. I had fluid around my liver and lung. It was found in a scan back in October. They were sure it was nothing, but it did test positive for pc. They were more surprised than I was. The only thing they can see is a suspicious spot on the liver. They drained the fluid and started me on Folfirinox. The fluid around the liver hasn't come back, but the lung keeps re-filling. I have a catheter in it (since the beginning of January) and I have to drain it myself at home every couple of days. They say hopefully when the chemo kills the cancer cells it will stop filling up. Did the doctor mention Folfirinox at all?
