I hope you get the best news possible about your mom. Im not exactly sure where the fluid is coming from in my Father in law. It is happening fairly quickly. It started the week after they put the stent in him and has been steady since. They draw off about 5-9 liters every week. It does seem to be increasing, but I am hoping that the 9liters they drew off monday was still related to all the fluid they gave him in the hosp (one dr mention that this could be the case, although I hope it is, I kind of think it isnt). We were hoping that the first round of chemo would help with this and reduce it immediately. It hasnt, the amounts have only increased and I wonder if that is an indication that the first round of chemo didnt have much of and effect. It is all so confusing and frustrating. It is such a horrible disease and it is awful to watch father in law wrestle with it. I read and read and hope to find something that will help. I havent found anything, just a lot of information on how awful it is.
