Hey there, I'm fairly new here but have been reading your discussions and am learning a lot. My 70 yr old mother was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer (Stage 3c) on Sept. 25th. She had a large amount of bloating from ascites. They drained 3 litres on Sept. 28 and then she had surgery on October 2nd. I saw her on Oct. 28th and her belly was quite swollen again. She had her first round of chemo on Thurs. Oct. 29th and the Dr sent her to the emergancy room to have her tummy drained again. I saw her again yesterday, Saturday Oct. 31st and it looks like quite a bit of fluid is back. Is it normal for so much fluid to return so quickly? I will be going with her for her treatment on Thursday Nov. 5th. Is there anything that I should be asking about this or the progression of her cancer? Thanks for your help. I'm so scared.
