Pericardial Effusion

Just a short post- does anyone know anything about pericardial effusion? My very dear friend has it- it came on really suddenly (apparently caused by bacteria). She’s only 34 and had to have emergency surgery to remove the fluid. Now it has built up again! They don’t want to use antibiotics just yet, and she’s obviously hoping to avoid more surgery.

Has anyone had experience with this? Know of any alternative practices that could help?
