A Paracentesis is the simply the process by which they drain the fluid from the abdomen, in order to do a cytology of the fluid and provide him some comfort. Sorry that is all happening at the same time. It is such a helpless feeling. Know you are doing as much as you can as a caretaker by posting on here and trying to learn about this awful beast. It helped me feel useful when my Mom was still fighting.
