Hello. I'm writing on behalf of my mum so apologies if it doesn't make complete sense... My mum has been diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver (non-alcoholic) and suffers from ascites. At the moment, she is drained every 3 weeks and loses 7 litres. Today her consultant at the Royal agree said that they have assessed her for the Alfa pump and would like to put her forward. Does anyone else use the Alfa pump and would be willing to share their experience of it (good and bad) so she can decide whether to go for it or not? The general anaesthetic is her biggest reservation at the moment. Many thanks. Helen
