relief of Ascetis

My brother (53yrs) is suffering from a badly swollen stomch with ascetis. He has had jaundice and was abusing alchohol for a long time. The doctor has prescribed water tablets but the swelling is not going down. Is there anything else we can do?

Dear Carol

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

It sounds like liver failure, in which case not much can be done for ascetis but you can explore the possibility for a liver transplant.
