I am wondering how many of you with PKD have a large stomach. My dad had a large stomach and I have that pregnant look too. I have read about the cysts growing large and squezzing the organs andthey need room so things are pushed out. I found an old article where the man had the "prego look" then went in and had some de-roofing (drainage) done on cysts and his stomach went completely flat. It said in time new cysts would grow and fill again and the large belly would come back. My doctor doesn't believe in the de-roofing because of the infection rate that comes along with it and the cysts fill within two years. My last test showed golfball size cysys on all my inners. I am just wondering how many other ppl with PKD have a large stomach ? .
