What causes recurrent fluid formation in the body while suffering from cirrhosis?
please see description
Thank You for contacting HCM. My name is Dr Muhammad Ali Rauf & i will look into your problem.
I have gone through your query and would try to help you in the best possible way. I'm sorry to hear that your friend is suffering that much. Actually in cirrhosis there is recurrent fluid formation in the body(ascites) with variceal bleeding. Once the process of cirrhosis is started, it can NOT be reversed. Only thing any doctor can do is to treat the symptoms. As you have seen yourself that varices have been tied but they rebleed after a while. Similarly if you drain fluid then it fors again. Most of the analgesics are metabolized in liver. As in this condition liver has stopped working so strong analgesics unfortunately can not be given. Else they will potentiate the problem and patient may go into Hepatic Encephalopathy soon. These are the reasons why you feel doctor is not doing anything.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
