I'm sorry to hear about your mother. I can only base my remarks on what
happened to my own mother towards the end. Her abdomen swelled up as if she
were pregnant and her legs and feet were huge. There was also a small pin
prick hole in her side, something you could barely see yet it leaked fluid
during the last two weeks of her life.
I'm not sure what else I can say except perhaps you could have her get a
second opinion. My mother's doctor explained the build up of fluids as her
major organs shutting down.
I'm really sorry I can't be of more help--your in my prayers.
