Has anyone experienced fluid retention in their legs/groin/peritoneal area - unrelated to ascites?
My mom has been experiencing this and they tried to drain her peritoneal area yesterday only to find that the fluid problem is not related to ascites.(She does have lung ascites. This seems unrelated.)
Her Primary Peritoneal cancer has been stage 4 for two years now and she does have lymph node involvement. Could that be the cause of the fluid retention? She is a thin person otherwise and has never had this type of swelling.
