Went to a Gastroentronologist, He was supposed to do a biopsy because my stomach blew up like a balloon and fluid was taken out. Had blood work and ultrasound and CT scans and everything came back great then he looked at the palm of my hand and said because it is slightly red you may have underlying cirrhosis. To me that does not make any since.
Do you have any idea what the fluid in your abdomen tested for? Believe it or not, before all these fancy tests, doctors diagnosed by symptoms, and did a pretty good job at it. This does not mean its not explored further to see what to do. There are only a few reasons for fluid in your abdomen, and one is cirrhosis. If the ct scan didn't show any tumors, then the logical conclusion is cirrhosis. If you are unhappy with what the gastro said, get a referral to a different one.
