I'm new on here and I'm following your post. May I ask how was your outcome from your Dr. appt.? My stomach is swelling again from my liver transplant in March of this year 2020. I've already had one paracentesis in April not sure if I need another. Anyone?

@rgt, Welcome to Connect. I want to Congratulate you on your liver transplant in March. I had my liver and kidney transplant in 2009, and I did not need any paracentesis after my transplant, although I did have my fair share of them before it. Was your April paracentesis performed by your transplant center or at a local facility? What are your transplant doctors saying about why you are accumulating fluid your abdomen?

I would like to invite you to post your question in the Liver transplant support group where it can be more readily viewed by liver transplant recipients. You can click on this link in blue > https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/liver-support-group/
