Recurrent Ovarian cancer

what causes all the bloating?  I have recurrent advanced platinum resistant ovarian cancer and now just on Topotecan.  I have never had such a huge  bloating before on all the chemo treatments; i.e. carbo/taxo; gemzar/carboplatin/Avastin.  None of these caused such a bloating.  I'm 61 years old and have always had a fllat abdomen, and I look and feel 6- 8 mos pregnant!  So miserable...any ideas?

Call the doctor.  It may be ascites, a build-up of liquid in your body.  If so, it can be drained, and as I understand it you will be more comfortable.  Good luck and God bless ...
