my mother-in-law has severe fluid on her stomach, and the doctors can not find the cause of it, this fluid is more than just the fluid you can get from the cancer. Its about 20# of fluid weekly. I was just curious if anybody else has had a similiar exerpeince that might help us figure this out, she also has swollen legs, blood clots, and fluid in her lungs. Any information would be greatly appreicated. thank you so much
thanks for responding. Yes she does have ovarian cancer. They have drained it several time. But im not sure about if they have tested it. they are kind of lost and not doing anything about it. they put a yube in her stomach so she can drain it herself if needed, and said they arent going to worry about it now, and will try to figure it out when her chemo done, but thats 4 more months atleast.
