Ascites

Postby toodotty » Thu Jan 24, 2019 7:17 pm

Hi everyone,
I have been suffering from Ascites since Christmas and have had 4 tedious admissions to hospital to treat this. In the last month I have had 20 litres of fluid drained off (in total) and now have a rocket drain fitted. I am finding it really hard to eat as I am constantly filling up with fluid. I have had so much conflicting advice that it has all proved rather tedious.

Anyone else suffering from this and found anything that helps?
