Well. It finally happened. I had to go to hospital for removal of the dreaded ascites. They took several litres. Although the procedure itself is bearable, the thought of having to head to hospital weekly, bi-weekly or monthly does not put me in a happy place.
Could others help me with their experiences with ascites. Do we know of anything that can reduce the liklihood? diet, walking? My first bout was very uncomfortable, creating edema in legs, making it impossible to find a comfy sitting position, stopped the pain medication from doing its job.... not to mention making me look pregnant. I know this is just the start of a process now so just looking for some words of wisdom and encouragement
