At night I want to ask why after taking the liquid a few days later I felt pain again in the back .. It was tight and accompanied by fever .. Thank you
Hello, Rahmat Hidayat, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pleural effusion is a condition where there is a buildup of fluid in the pleural cavity (the cavity that covers the lungs), it can be caused by lung infection, inflammation, heart failure, kidney disease, etc. If the fluid is excess, it can cause shortness of breath, coughing, or pain when inhaling / exhaling.
One of the therapeutic options for pleural effusion is thoracentesis or aspiration of the accumulated fluid. Thoracentesis is performed by inserting a needle or tube into the chest cavity (between the ribs) so that fluid can be drained. Some of the risks of this procedure that may occur are pain, bleeding, infection, to pneumothorax (air accumulates in the pleural lining, causing difficulty in moving the lungs and shortness of breath). However, doctors will try to minimize the risk by carrying out the procedure according to the correct procedure.
Shortness of breath, fever, and back pain could be due to an infection associated with the procedure, or other accompanying conditions, such as skin infections, acute respiratory infections, or other non-specific viral infections. To reduce pain and fever, you can take paracetamol or ibuprofen, rest, and get enough nutritional needs. However, if you feel shortness of breath, pain and fever that do not go away with paracetamol / profen mother, you should immediately go to the doctor for a physical examination and any necessary supporting examinations, such as a complete blood test to repeat x-rays.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
