pericardial effusion

I have pericardial effusion. I have had a fever with it for over two weeks. Do any of you have any idea how long this takes to recover from? I have been taking 800mg of Motrin for the fever and inflammation and 0.6 mg of colchicine to help with the inflammation and fluid I think. I feel better but the fever won't go away.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament.
If your symptoms are not resolving with anti inflammatory medications, therapy with steroids may be indicated. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
