Hello Jenny ! The agegroup of your grandmother demands prompt and detailed investigatgions on her swollen belly.
You have not mentioned whether she is ambulatory or bed ridden post stroke. In bed ridden patients, we have to exclude fecal impaction
, which may give rise to abdominal swelling. WHeezing
is due to her respiratory infection/allergy
which needs to be taken care of by a medicine specialist.
Apart from this, you have to think of a chronic urinary tract infection
in non-ambulatory patients, which has to be taken care of.
If the above are excluded, then consult a medical specialist, who may advise her for a complete evaluation of her kidney function, liver function and cardio vascular status all of which may give rise to swollen belly and the last one can give rise to weezing as well.
She may also need an ultrasound
abdomen to exclude accumulation of fluid in the belly/or any space occupying lesion. So, withuot any delay take her to a specialist clinic for clinical evaluation and treatment. We all wish her an early recovery.
