My father has gained about 7lbs in 10 days since last Appoinment. He started gaining weight slowly since March and so far has gained about 13lbs. Docs previously did not recommended paracentesis and asked to carry on with diuretics with lower dose. So now we visited again and he recommended taping.
He had it drained once only and that was in last February 2.5ltr. His albumin has remained at 3 to 3.1 steady. But this time doc asked him to be admitted for 2-3 days For draining and also said he will be given human albumin injection. He didn’t get it last time plus the draining was done by radiologist in about hour n half and we were back home.
Is it normal practice to be given human albumin during taping? We fear that if he is given it than his body may not naturally maintain it through diet. Thanks
