My mum had her pericardial sac removed 7 days ago, and is still in the hospital, and the fluid build up is continuing/draining. Her doctors have not been able to identify a cause, and she does not know what is going on. She still has a drainage tube, and is wondering what will happen. It has not slowed down.
Unfortunately, I am in the UK, and she is in the US, so I can not be there, and have no one to ask to reassure her. Does anyone have any experience of continued fluid after the pericardial sac removal? Or suggestions on what questions to ask? What are her options?
