peritoneal fluid color

What does it mean when the color of the fluid drawn at a parencentesis is the color of red wine?
I have carcinoma in the jejunum and peritoneum but I was shocked by the color change yesterday and all the doctors are out of town.

Hi.  The "red wine" color may mean that you have blood in your paracentesis fluid.  It may be due to some bleeding from the peritoneal masses that you have. You should inform your doctor or any of his staff about this development, since it is a potentially serious condition.
