So far the scans post surgery have been clean for any mets, aside from 3 lymph nodes which tested positive following procedure. Since she longer has any pancreas, gall bladder, or spleen, the suggestion that a clot or infection could have developed in the places where her digestive system was rebuilt seems possible. The fact that ascites typically occurs at end stage/mets stage is somewhat of a relief since the likelihood the remnants of pc has spread anywhere since the surgery is relatively low.

Again, thank you for your responses. We have a call into her doctor and will be firm that she needs to be seen tomorrow to rule out infection, blood clot, or anything worse.
