I have a history of hereditary lymphedema and 2 tyeps of b cell lymphomas.

Because of the lungs filling up with fluids every month, in January I had a pleurodesis. Because of the complicating medical conditions, I was told there would be only a 50% chance of it working.

A few nights ago, while in bed, I moved and then felt like something pulled apart in the lung area.

How do you tell if the pleurodesis pulled apart and if it has, is there lung pain afterwards.

Since then my lungs have hurt.

Can this also lead to ARDS?

I really appreciate any feed back. I know I should call my lung doc, but after a couple months in the hospital last Winter, I'm not not anxious to go back...not to mention the cost factor.
