  • Hi Annie,

    I would, if I was you phone either your Dr or Cancer Nurse and explain to them. I think you should be able to have the fliud drained early.

    True not to worry, I know it`s hard.

    Please keep in touch

  • Hi Annie, I agree with Sally. Contact your cancer nurse or GP. I know how uncomfortable this is.

  • I will phone on Monday never know might drain me tues after scan , he knows I'm not a complainer , iv asked my friend for water tablets she said they are good , our local hospital is at a standstill it's so busy , anyway my wee grandson us two today , I'm not in pain but feel and look nine months thank you xx

  • Hi Annie, please make sure you contact someone on Monday, ok? x x

  • Hi Annie. Telephone the CNS for a chat. Una went up a few times to be drained and then they eventually put a permanent drain in for her to save her having to go to hospital so often. Thinking of you. Ann Xo #Warriors

  • Hi Annie I agree re phoning for advice. I had ascites a couple times and it can build up quickly making you uncomfortable . I found the drain ok not too sore just a wee tiny bit uncomfortable coming out only.

    Hope it all goes ok

  • That sounds a long time to wait please phone the doctor's secretary or the gynae or oncoclogy nursing tem. I presume you have a number to call ? If not please get in touch with someone, through your GP of necessary as long as they will see you immediately and take it seriously.

  • Hope you are being seen today xx
