I have battled with ascites since diagnosis and was controlling with spirolactone and furosemide. However one doctor will take me off em because of kidney damage the next one along will put me back on them.
If I don’t take spirolactone I fill with fluid within the week and need draining which is a pain to organise.
Spirolactone drives my potassium up and puts me in danger of a seizure. Furosemide can counter this but strips sodium.
The liver team really don’t want me on diuretics at all because of liver damage but I’m permanently in hospital being drained.
Does this increase in fluid build up indicate a worsening of liver performance affecting my mortality?
