Blast from the past...when I was going through my chemotherapy nearly 8 long years ago I got a rather large build up of ascites (fluid) in the abdomen area.In my own defence as thread starter - I specifically said that was about bad numbers. It is definitely not a "my old aches and pains" thread - despite what a few have posted.
My intention was to build an Alfaowner frankenstein composite of record blood pressures, cholesterol counts, lung capacities, wheezy asthma puffers, plummeting blood platelets and any other assorted extreme readings for health stats.
However. I've lost interest in that now.
Only way to get rid of this really uncomfortable mass was a large tube stuck into my side to let it drain out.
Three times I enjoyed this....first time they got 5 litres outta me,then 7 litres...and my piece de resistance...a 10 litre special...which lost me a cool 18lbs in one afternoon.
All a dim and distant memory thank goodness.
