Crossing one's fingers that either the fluid can be drained again, if only just a bit to make things more comfortable. Or medications, the strong stuff to help ease the constant pain.

Shorts or light compression garments, such as these help hide the bloat. Sometimes it works. Other days, like today, you just cut your pants or shorts with a pair of scissors.
"The hell with it!"
I hope this video, podcast helps other oncology patients... brave warriors.
