pleurisy rub

Posted by blueot @blueot, Oct 6, 2018

I have had Pleural effusion, the fluid went away but I still have the pleural rub. I Googled how long it takes for pleural rub to go away, and the internet said 2 weeks. I have had it for 6 months! I was on cochicine and indomethacine, but both are dangerous drugs so I got off if them. I am taking OTC Advil, but it's not really helping. My doctors say it's going to take a while to go away. Is there anyone who has a pleural rub or who has had a pleural rub.? Can you tell me about your experience? I'm so stressed out!

Do you know the cause of your effusion? Is that underlying cause being treated or what did you do to reduce the fluid?
