can anyone tell me if ascites leaves the body its self or do you have to have it drained out / or will medicine work?
i have had a ultra scan today and i am told apart from my fatty liver all is fine. but reduce beer and eat well.
I have cut down already on the beer and eat very well including avoiding salts /salty foods?
My story is too long to be written but in a nut shell - i had hep c type 1 low load and completed 48 weeks on the double therapy , however relapsed , then went on to have the treble therapy 48 weeks again to clear the virus which has now been dormant for two years . i am a strong person who has lost his family as a result of catching this virus approx 15 years (as told by a doctor based on the scared liver that seems to be healing itself?) in which i have had two kids who do not have hvc . Any way i have had various symptoms along the way which have come and gone . I had a endoscopy a couple of times and then told i need banding but then never needed them. i have also thought i have the vains on my belly but just found out they are actually stretch marks ..... as my stomach gets big and then reduces ? so i think it must be this ascites.
i am going to be having a fibro scan soon in London , and a follow up with the proff .
