Smile Help with fluid?!

Hi-
I am 52 and last year had a double bypass -since then I have experienced fluid in my stomach that makes me feel on some days like I am 4 months pregnant!! I have no fluid in my ankles -my heart is functioning at close to 90%...I have been tested for cancer etc. but they keep saying it is leftover from the Bypass -any one else experience this and how did you get relief?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

I'm assuming you had an Echocardiogram? It sounds like your heart is functioning o.k. Has your doctor had you take a diuretic?? I think you need more testing..take care
