A friend of mine has hep c, in the last few weeks she has swollen up in her stomach/abd area. She was loosing weight (not trying too) but her stomach continues to get larger. Her stomach in now about 26 inches larger than it was and she has gain a pound for each inch. She is going to the doctors but they don't seem to be in a hurry to do anything. They said she may have cirrious of the liver. Any ideas on what is going on and what could happen to her?

swollen stomach
I have hep c also and I have a fairly bloated gut all the time. As the disease progresses the liver gets larger which could be one reason, the other is that you may have cirhossis as I have and as that gets to the end stage your stomach may become filled with fluid. This is called ascetis and they can take the fluid out when needed. Go and see a doctor at the liver clinic in a public hospital, you will need a referral
