Question: PCOS Abdominal swelling swollen lymph nodes edema


 lyssaanne - Sun Oct 16, 2005 10:52 pm

Help, I was diagnosed with PXOS after the birth of my first child in 2000. At this time I do not have any cyst. Presently I have the following symptoms: extreme abdominal swelling that goes away in I lay down (By extreme I mean in the morning I look normal but by dinner look like I'm 9 months pregnant), Lymph nodes in my neck that become hard and swollen every few months currently the left one on my neck behind my right ear, severe edema. I am taking lasix 20mg and bumex 1mg twice daily with moderate sucess but still do have some edema. I have had liver fuction, kidney fucntion, thyroid, and gallbladder blood test, CT scan of head and abdomin, echocardiogram, ekg, abdominal and pelvic ultrasound, cest and abdominal x-rays all of which are normal. My doctor has not idea what this could be. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Have you been checked for ascites? How is your nutrition? Has he checked protein levels in your blood?
