As I wrote before my husband has had nausea, vomiting and constipation since finishing chemo. A recent CT showed free fluid in his abdomen.One cause could be from lack of peristalisis. Which would give him all the problems he is having. Has anyone had this trouble and will probiotics help. How long to get your self back in sinc.

Dear Pat,
I don't know about probiotics helping fluid outside the intestines. If I'm understanding what you wrote correctly.

Do the doctors call this fluid ascites? I know from other people's stories that ascites can cause constipation and bowel obstructions because of the pressure that it puts on the bowels.

I'm sorry that I'm not more help!
Take care,
