Folks, Can anyone give me some advice regarding ASCITES? Here are the questions I have: a.) Is the procedure long and difficult?b.) Has anyone received an infection from this procedure?c.) How long did it take for the ascites to come back and does it always come back? My Mom is holding steady thankfully, though experiencing pain on and off. Had her Gemzar treatment on Wednesday, but is really most disturbed by the ascites situation. Any advice/experience would be appreciated. thanks!-Ruth H.
