I am concerned about myself because my abdomen is swollen (I'm too old for child bearing). I just noticed it yesterday but think it has been going on foyr a while. I have osteoarthitis, rhumatoid arthriris, hypothroidism (cancerous thyroid removed in June of 2û11), lost weight recently, however it wasn't rapid. I also take a bounty of medications and have five doctors that provide care for me. I've never had my abdomen swell like this before. Any input would help me.
