Re: What does ascites look like?
I ask because if I am too active (running errands, standing too long , etc.), I will swell in my abdomen, hands swell to point of not being able to make fists and my ankles get huge. Laying down helps. I do have cirrhosis (grade IV stage III). I do get the watermellon tummy. Lately, I've sometimes woke up in morning with it. Very uncomfortable. Also, my face and espeacialy(sp?) my eyes are very swollen upon waking. I have not been given an ascites diagnosis, havent been to doc in almost a year but appt next month. However, I seem to get more info from these boards!
thanks in advance...
