Things seem to going from bad to worse, Peeps, my husband’s Ascites has enlarged so hugely to the point his belly button has herniated. He saw his surgeon last Tuesday and he quadrupled his diuretics - Tamsulosin and Frumil - and he passes a reasonable amount of water in the mornings but that’s about it. He cannot be operated on because of the dangers involved. I am weighing him each day but he has actually gained a pound, not good. Back to the surgeon in ten days in which case he will probably have to drain him again. Peeps is end stage liver disease, anyone else had this ongoing problem?
