Diuretics, ascites, paracentesis
Relative with HCV and cirrhosis most anxious to get drained for ascites. Doctor more cautious. He is gradually increasing dosages of Lasix and Aldactone based on kidney function, electrolytes, etc. Is draining risky? Once drained, does patient needed draining every 3 - 5 weeks?
