Question: Meig Syndrome

Writing on behalf of my friend Ms Y.

She has been diagnosed of Meig's Syndrome.


Ascites for past 7 days, with severe distention
Vomitting if trying to intake any thing including water
Fever 99F during evening
Normal urine
MR report:
Ovaries size are Right: 3.15 X 2.8 Left: 3.00 X 2.2 Right ovary has slight cyst formation
A Fibroid of about 10 Cms X 8 Cms X 6 Cms outside uterus
Liver and pancreas Normal
Liquid tapped: doesn't show any malignity
CA 125 are high at 350
slight cough
Cytology report negetive
Blood test everything normal except WBC

Want to know, have they diagnosed correclty. The doctors are planning to operate her after 3 days, and will remove that fobroid and the cyst formation. They also told that they will be doing frozen biopsy too.

Need help and advice. Any advice greatly appreciated.
