Pleural Fluid and Lymph Nodes

My Brother Wali aged 32 years, weight 65kg, wheatish colour, 5 feet 5 inch height, jolly minded, excellent in education, married and have a baby girl.

He has some cough at night since Oct 2016, and later in Nov he had some pain in left chest which felt him hard to sleep. Allopath doctors gave him antibiotics but nothing cures. On 12th Dec 2016, we went to hospital and Xray shows that his left lung has a plueural fluid, they admit him and take some fluid for test and also did CT scan. Later on 2 days he was diagnosed with suspected TB and advised him TB medicines.

After 1 week, as his condition continuously worst, we again approach doctor he initially said carryon TB medicine, but afterward analysing SGPT which was 1200, said you have to go for biopsy as of enlarge Lymph nodes in axila and chest and stop TB medicines. He was get paniced and stop all allopathic medicines and asked me to see homeopathic for primary treatment.


CT scan impression shows Lymphoma or TB.




Next day, 24th Dec I visited homeo doctor he said nothing to worry, i can easily treat him.
After a week of starting solely homeo treatment we test SGPT and it came down to 330 from 1200, but blood CBC shows neutrophils 85 and lymphocytes 12 which shows infection in blood. Allopath doctors said we have no option untill you have Biopsy.

The medicine given by Homeo doctor, i know few in it
2. HYDRA AND MIGHT BE CALENDULA and one more med in this combination.
5. MAG PHOS 12X when pain occur
6. Apis 3x only night, started 4th Jan 2017, after 10 days of initial treatment.

I need to ask we are totally on homeo medicine and no allopathic med at all. Does homeo med effectively cure? As my brother is sustaining weight 65kg and restore normal appetite and feel better now, except some hard productive cough especially after meal and get tired.

Is there any other suggestions which we need to follow.

I am really thankful for it.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please continue with the homeopathic treatment. You don't have any recourse to allopathy now as that could damage his liver. Please ask him to avoid red meat and junk food.

The doctors may do thoracentesis procedure to remove plural fluid. You should continue the homeopathic treatment. The attending homeopathic physician will review remedies in the light of new developments. There are no ace remedies for this condition. The remedy depends on prevailing indications.

Yes the same recomended by our homeo doctor and we did the same by chest tube drainage. We continue medicine of homeopathic and the report of pleural effusion come on 1st feb to reveal what is the cause.
Thanks for reply. I am greatful to get assisted.

I would let you know one more thing LDH test value is 498 (normal range is around 200 to 350). C-Reactive Protein value is 14.8 and uric acid is 6.3

Please share your remarks on it as allopath suspect it as lymphoma or TB, but current pulmonologist suggest high chance of TB as LDH value of lymphoma crosses 800 and Uric acid 11 plus.

i wont express my opinion on this highly technical matter. But i would like to make one suggestion that the patient should implement in addition to his homeopathic treatment. Please ask the patient to do some yogic exercises. These exercises are good for strengthening immune system. They have helped in many cases declared incurable by the modern medicine. The patient should do these exercises as gently as possible.

Please read my posts on the breathing exercises called as Kapalbhati Pranayam and Anulom Vilom Pranayam by following the links given below. Please practise these pranayams regularly for half an hour preferably in a garden early in the morning. You may practise at any other convinient time. The only restriction that you have to follow is not to do these exercises within 4 hours after meals. You can have meals not within 15 minutes after finishing these exercises.

He is bit feeling well with some improvement in appetite.

He is on chest tube since 4 days and after coming home get 500 ml more fluid slowly drained out. How many days it would drain further?

It is not possible to make such predictions. Such disorders put patient's courage and forbearance to test. Things ease out in the course of time with the right attitude.
