No. Acites is not caused by stress.
The most common reason for ascites is significant liver disease. If this were the case with your sister I would have expected her blood tests to show up as abnorma.
the bllod test does not show that.
blood test does not show that according to the three doctors
but they said that they would do a biospy on the liver. Through the blood test and CT scan, they didt see any problem on the liver. That strange.
They also did cardiology test, and all her organs were scan.
My Sister is 53 year old. She has all these years very health conscious. Her height is 148cm and she is not fat like 50KG.
For 5 days, the docs have done colonscopy and endoscopy, and all the necessary test on the heart, didnt find any heart related problem. All CT Scan and blood test didnt show anything bad. They have drained those fluid from her abdomen and those fluid also didnt show any bacteria infection.
The only thing so far found was Ployri only.
Do you think she should get a liver biospy? Would that be the liver damange does not show from CT scan and blood test ?
