Hi Tricia.........My husband Mike started to retain fluid....not the usual in relationship to PSC but a lot......so they decided to drain the fliud which made him feel better however the doctor took a sample of the fuild from his stomach and he found it full of cancer cells. He passed away approximately a week later. They made Mike as comfortable as he could be...it wasn't until about 48 hours prior to his passing that his blood pressure dropped and he became non responsive.....however up until then we could converse which was a blessing. Lynn
