I have cirrhosis- non alcohol related. Two years ago I developed bleeding varices, but when they did an endoscopy, they had stopped bleeding so no further action was taken. About 6-8 weeks ago, I developed ascites. I did not recognise it at first, I think I will if it happens again. I was put on spirironolactone, and in the month of December have lost 15kg-- approx 2 stone. I note others are able to say how many litres of fluid were drained from them. I haven't had a drain as such, but was wondering how much fluid (approximately) would 15kg account for...can anyone advise?
