Pleural effusions in patients with multiple myeloma result from different aetiologies, each requiring a different type of treatment. Due to the important therapeutic and prognostic implications of finding a myelomatous pleural effusion, diagnostic throracocentesis with careful cytological examination and protein electrophoresis with immunofixation should be performed whenever possible. Supplemental studies with flow cytometry and cytogenetics should also be considered.

It means that bacteria that cause tb (mycobacterium tuberculosis) were not detected in his chest fluid. In other words, he does not have tb however, any chest infection potentially affects children more easily and in a worse manner. It might be good to keep grandparent and child separate for some time. Having said that, 1. Children less than 5 years are at increased risk 2. After antibiotics are given once, spread of infection decreases.

My mother's sister was told by doctors that she has around 4-5 litres of water in her lungs and consulted to take out that water in around 2-4 times with a batch of 1-1.5 litres. Can it really happen that our lungs have 4-5 litres of water which cannot be removed in one or two time.

Yes itmis possible. But just removing water will increase problems. Better take right treatment to remove the cause of water collection.

A minor pleural effusion often goes away on its own without treatment. In other cases, doctors may need to treat the condition that is causing the pleural effusion. ... Pleural effusion can also be treated by removing fluid from the pleural space. This may help relieve symptoms, such as shortness of breath and chest pain.

Yes you can work anywhere, after healing pleura thickens, but comes to normal by its own. You have to do deep breathig exercises to recover early.
