My father in law is 84 years old and suffering from Lungs adenocarcinoma with MPE. He is on Palliative care. Doc has advised for pleurodesis. From the time (Jan'17) he is on palliative, he is leading a quality life (No Breathlessness, No coughing, good Appetite, moderately life). However X Ray shows massive effusion. Shall appreciate ans to my queries. 1. Should we go ahead with pleurodesis? 2. How long does it take and any side complications?

MD - Pulmonary Medicine, MBBS
Pulmonologist, Gurgaon
Pleurodesis is just a procedure to stick two pleural surface with each other so that there is no fresh formation of pleural fluid. If he has massive effusion making him breathless there are two options: 1: put chest tube and do pleurodesis, this will make him relieve his symptoms of breathlessness. It takes two to three for entire process in hospital. 2: go for in dewelling pleural catheter (IPC) Not much complications for pleurodesis.

Whenever there is mucous discharge from the nostrils I will suggest you to take one tablet of cetrizine at night and we have to rule out deviated nasal septum after clinical examination.

Visit a pediatrician and get a opinion after he/she examines his chest. He may need a x ray. You can give him honey 5-10ml twice a day for dry cough. And ask him to do salt water gargles twice a day.

Surgery for sinusitis is a relatively safe one. Please follow the instructions of operating surgeon. You may have difficulty in breathing from nose temporarily. Since you have allergy problem also, you may have to take certain medication for a long time.

I am experiencing severe cough and headache for a few days now. What should I do?

I am experiencing severe cough and headache for a few days now. What should I do?
Hi, cold and flu brings along a dry hacking cough and headache. Measures: 1) drink warm fluids: an upper respiratory tract infection like a cold or flu causes postnasal drip. Extra secretions trickle down the back of your throat, irritating it and sometimes causing a cough. Drinking warm tea or soups, help thinning out the mucus and even helps in sinusitis. 2) steam inhalation and warm compresses locally to painful areas in head. 3) lozenges to soothen the cough reflex. 4) avoid dusty places and going out to crowded areas where there is pollution. 5) take adequate rest and cover warmly to protect yourself from cold wind. 6) avoid sour and cold food.

Hi I've been suffering from recurring sinus infections for about 6 months now, my right nostril is fully blocked with what I can feel is a blockage of mucus in my top right nostril, I've tried to clean out with hot water and salt but doesn't get it all out. I can blow so much out until I get a headache and my nose starts to hurt, I've tried every nasal spray and anti histamines but got to stop taking them as I think it's causing more damage to my nose and making me very sensitive to sun light.
