Posted by Patsy Pouncey

My friend in her late 60's.  First went to SAMC in Dothan.  Diagnosed with Liver disease.  Secondly, changed to UAB iin Birmingham, AL.  Told lymph needed to be removed.  Removed lymph node.  Fluid builds up and needs to be removed once a week at doctors office in Troy, AL.  7-14 liters is removed each time.  Dostor in Troy recommends doctor in Mobile, AL to give another diagnosis.  So far, she cannot make appt. because they only make appts. once a month.  Next day to make appts for Mobile is Nov.  Can you suggest someone to give her a more accurate diagnosis or someone to help her stop so much water retention.  She has had to stop going to church because she is so weak and she becomes bloated so quickly.  She eats normally and is not overweight.  Dostors say she does not have cancer nor liver disease.  She and her husband are frustrated about what to do.  Can you help through suggestions.  Thank you!!!  Patsy Pouncey
