Well, my dad hasn't had it yet but he is going to have to soon. He has absolutely no appetite so I was hoping that once some of the pressure was gone he would feel better and hungry again. If you are pretty new here, you can find out a lot by using the search forum and typing in ascites. I did that but I was specifically looking for how people felt after-wards and didn't really find the answer to my question. I hope that your husband finds relief. I know that there is a drug everyone is talking about that you will definitely find with the search forum... it starts with an 'a', that they are using it to treat the ascites, and I know that they use diuretics sometimes too, and that it helps. Make sure your husband is taking probiotics or at least eating lots of yogurt if he is on antibiotics all of the time. We didn't do that with my dad and he got c-diff which is very bad. They sell acidopholous (I think I spelled that wrong) in the drugstore too in a little pill form or a flavored tablet that you can chew, and hopefully your husband's digestive system won't get all messed up from the ongoing antibiotics. Also, a lot of people on here who have recurring infections and have to take antibiotics often swear by a product called florostar but I looked it up and it is too expensive for us, but the yogurt and pills seem to be working now and keeping the bacteria in his stomach balanced. Good luck!
Pam- I looked it up and the drug is called Avastin so you can look under the search forum or even just ask your doctor about it. Or both
