Last night l had to go to the er because of pain in my back after having surgery in 2015. Everything went well besides having sciatica. But anyway l keep telling doctors l go to that l am swelling and it seems like an endless point. They wanted me to see a GI for my shunts, which is hepatic fisular portal vein. And when l walk l get so tired and hurting for trying. So you would think they would aspirate some of the fluids to have some relief. I really think it’s ascities but who would think you would have to be the doctor. I have gained 6lbs in one month. So before l can go back to the Mayo Clinic will be in Nov and to see a new liver doctor mines recommended.it is also Nov. Where can you actually go to get some relief. So l guess l can’t wait until Nov to get relief.
