Does anyone have an incisional hernia from ascites?
My mom got an insicional hernia after debulking surgery and her chemo tratments have not improved the ascites. It is getting worse and her abdominal hernia is worse. Has anyone experienced this? What should we do?
hi i just saw th e doctor on friday- after 6 months of finishing the chemos treatments, concerned about my weight gain etc, he ordered a ct scan - he mentioned i may have a hernia- my debulking surg was in jan 2009. i'm not sure what comes next if they discover a hernia- what then?
that's the fuild in the stomach? i have a lot of fluid drained before my surg,
shortly after they diag. the hernia- i noticed it about 2 weeks ago- then my hsb said something about my weight gain, so thats when i went to see the m..d he ordered a cat scan- i 'm very concerned because my ca125 went from 14 to 26,
before surg and chemo is was in the thousands. i got the same chemo combination your mom is getting. thats what i am wondering if they discover one what happens then? do they go in a repair it.?-i should e mail my m.d and ask him? but it takes a couple of days for them to respond to the email
