Fluid Around Liver

Mum OVCA Stage 3 2005 CA125 512
Reoccured Nov 2007 CA125 60

She has been for a check up today and her CA125 is 80 and she has fluid around her liver. No lumps or anything in her liver just fluid. She starts chemo again next week.

I don't really understand alot about this fluid around her liver.

Will the chemo get rid of the fluid?

I don't totally understand the cause of ascites and I get it frequently,especially when I come off chemo.The chemo will get rid of the fluid,or it should at least. Usually my Onc has a paracentisis done to remove as much as possible ,then he begins chemo for 6 rounds. I'll keep your Mom in prayer~~~Joanne

Hi Ang, sorry to hear about your Moms check up results.  Chemo should get rid of the chemo though.  Glad to hear though that there are no new findings on the liver.
take care

I was not real sure about the ascites thing either and recently questioned my Dr about it. It is basically a "leak" of the cancer cells, the way that I understand it. Thankfully it has not been much of a problem for me, though at times there has been some found. The chemo, when it is working will ususally either get rid of it or at least keep it under control. If it gets to be much of a problem, it can always be drained off.
