I am reading so much information on Dr. Google that is worrying me. I am a 56 year old post-menopausal female. I have been gaining weight (mainly in my tummy) for about a year now. Figured it was age and the fact that I now work from home. I do like to have an Amaretto on ice in the evening. Can someone tell me how you can determine if its ascites or just weight gain? Thanks!
