My father was diagnosed with cirrhosis in March 2010. Since then, he is being drained every 2 weeks, has no appetite(and when he does, cheats and eats too much sodium). He doesn't drink at all anymore, but he has the worst cough. Is this caused from the fluid buildup? Even after he is drained (yesterday), he is coughing away, and sucking down cough drops like they are candy. I told him to eliminate the sodium so he is drained less, but what is with the cough?
