When you say your stomach is swollen, by how much? Is tummy still soft to the touch or has it gone really rigid? Do you have other swelling - ankles, legs, feet or I hate to say it scrotum? In a male, ascites will make you look pregnant with a distended abdomen and cause swelling also in the areas mentioned. If you genuinely think this is ascites you need to see your own doctor or attend a doctor to get checked out. It would be most unlikely to get ascites with only an F1 reading for fibrosis - ascites is a sign of advanced and decompensated cirrhosis and you'd most likely have other advanced symptoms too.

Hi Febeli57,

It could be many things causing this but you do need to see a doctor as soon as possible. It certainly is far too soon to think the worst.

Dont worry too much ascites in it self won’t kill you. I have been draining for 2 years but now more regularly. See a doctor for a proper diagnosis.
