I often wonder why I see this in many patient's profiles here and do not know why it is stopped when it worked so well in earlier years.
My thoughts and prayers are with you guys.

She had thoracentesis, where they drained 1.5L of fluid from her chest, and at least that has helped with her shortness of breath... However her AST/ALT are too high (~700/1000) for them to do it just yet. They thought this might be caused by tumor partially blocking a blood vessel in the liver ...ruled out by ultrasound testing. If it had been that, at least they could have put in a stent to open the blood flow and prevent further liver injury. Instead, they initiated a course of acetylcysteine, but I wonder if this is just a shot in the dark or whether it will do anything...
