Abdominal Swelling
Me again!  Going to the Dr. this afternoon - a little nervous.  Everyone has mentioned abdominal swelling, which I have, and I wanted to compare/bounce off everyone what exactly that means.  What my swelling feels like is not like gas, what it feels more like is when I was pregnant.  Strangely, it's ABOVE my belly button!  I have to sit up very straight just like when I was pregnant because it feels like when my children had their feet in my stomach.  It is very tight.  I can't "pooch" my stomach out at all. It's already "pre-pooched".  It's really very strange!  Sometimes it's worse than others, especially if I eat a normal sized meal.  It feels like there is only a certain amount of space in there, and when I eat it crowds the cyst and makes it start hurting, sometimes quite a bit.  Does any of this sound familiar?  Thanks again for your great advice, and God bless!

Sounds like I had which turned out to be ascites which is fluid - not necessarily malignant though - that will be diagnosed on testing,

Good luck with your appointment,
