Overnight my stomach tripled in size. I don't have any pain

Customer Question

Overnight my stomach tripled in size. I don't have any pain and haven't eaten or drank anything out of the ordinary. The only thing different is I had two breast biopsy's done yesterday, but can't see how that would be related?
JA: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?
Customer: No
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I had breast cancer three years ago and had tram flap reconstruction

Hello,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

Is there any feeling of lump or mass?

How are stool & urine?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No lump or mass, I had a normal bowel movement this morning and urine is normal.

Thank you for all the information,
Swelling of the abdomen can be from a few factors.
Distension can occur from gas.
This can occur in constipation or obstruction.
But your bowel habit is normal.
Other possibility is a growth or mass but you are not feeling any such.
Collection of fluid can also occur.
An ultrasound or CT scan of abdomen will help in this regard.
I would suggest to discuss it with your doctor.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.
