: My sister had breastcancer with treatment of radiation and chemo.Now is very sick with fluid around heart and in lungs...Has anyone heard of this, any sggestions or cures? she was treated with taxatere. Help! Kelly
I do not know much about breast cancer. I wish I could help you so that is why I send this e-mail.
I have read a journal from USAToday reporter, Cathy Hainer, of her struggle with breast cancer. If
you search by Cathy Hainer you will see the journal. I suggest you read it. It describes Cathy's
journey and I think it will help you to understand what your sister is going through. I believe one
section of the journal talks about fluid around heart and lungs.
Unfortunately, it is not a very happy ending but you can learn a lot about different procedures that
she went through and her emotions, etc. Things that your sister may be experiencing.
Best Wishes To You and Your Sister.
