Doreen, make sure they send some of the fluid to cytology. They can test it for cancer cells and infection. Dad had his drained from the lung first by needle(he said it wasn't painful) second via a chest tube. The chest tube procedure was a little painful he said but not unbearable. I know that doesn't help much his being lung and your dads being tummy sorry I have no knowledge there and the main reason I posted was to tell you to make sure they test some of the fluid. Dads was pinkish color which meant blood involvement. Thats how we found out dads cancer had spread to the lung. The fluid came back with cancer cell suspicious. Hope all goes well and daddy gets some relief. Let us know how it goes and I do so hope its not painful for him, BTW dad said they deadened the area first and the only time he felt any pain was when they entered the area between the lung and lining.
