Last year I found out that breast cancer discovered and treated in 2002-2003 had mestatisized to my liver. I also had fluid around my right lung between the lung and pleura that had cancer cells in it. Chemo therapy has disolved the liver tumor and the fluid around my lung is almost gone. My problem now is that my abdominal cavity swells every day. Some days my waist measurement may increase as much as 3-4 inches by the end of the day. I have had ultrasound performed on my liver, spleen, gallbladder, pancreas, etc looking for ascites, but none were found. A lymphedema therapist says the fluid is not lymphedema. I have no pain with the swelling; just discomfort. The swelling was happening before I underwent chemo the second time. The swelling is now worse than it ever was. Anyone have any idea what might be causing the swelling? I just underwent a PET scan in December.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
