    If you have ascites, why would they drain your liver?

    You might need a peritoneal drain, they'll probably just give you diuretics though.

    Do you know for sure it's ascites? I can give you a simple test to do.

        That looks like ascites; I'd just go to a doctor now tbh. If not, you're going to perform what's called a shifting dullness test; this will be easier if you have someone to help you.

        Lay flat on your back for a minute or so, then percuss your stomach starting at your belly button and moving down to your flank; you should notice the resonant note change to a duller note if you have ascites.

        Now lay on your side for a minute and percuss starting at the flank that is facing towards the ceiling and move towards your other flank. At some point, you'll probably notice that resonance change, but now nearer to your bellybutton. This demonstrates that fluid is shifting around in your peritoneal cavity.

    Guys don’t bother
    This anon is a massive pussy, he has Ascites but is terrified of getting the pleurx drain because it involves making two small cuts to your stomach to put the catheter in (I’ve told him he can ask for morphine)
    He won’t go, he’s scared of the incisisions. Just keep waiting till it get worse gay, 5 minutes of pain to end this shit for good. Go to the fricking ER who cares if it hurts

    I don’t understand this, if you have the other symptoms you need to go. If you have no other symptoms it’s probably just fat. Why do you think you have this?

    I'm a doctor. Would recommend you go seek medical attention, especially liver ultrasound +/- liver enzymes. Most ascites is due to cirrhosis, some from heart failure (but heart failure usually associated with shortness of breath and leg edema).

    I've done paracentesis (draining ascites) a good number of times. It's generally not painful - it's like a needle and we anesthetize. There's much worse stuff.

      And does this need drained routinely?

      How does one prevent this, or treat it if it’s a very acute case?

        Depends on the cause. If the underlying disease is severe, it often requires routine drainage.

        Preventing it = preventing the underlying cause. Generally it's from cirrhosis, most commonly due to alcohol or metabolic fatty liver. Try not to drink too much or develop obesity. There are other rarer causes too, but those are generally out of our control.

        There are acute causes of ascites, like clots blocking parts of liver circulation, but rare as well and generally not something we can prevent with lifestyle.

          Oh also tylenol overdose, viral illnesses (hepatitis B & C). Would not recommend.

    If you have ascites tben I would be less worried about looking bloated and more worried about surviving beyond the next 5 years.
