Do folks with a bad liver get fluid on their stomach? What do you do about it?

Yes, it is called ascites. Have you spoken to your doctor about it?
Limit your salt, monitor your diet to see if certain fluids/diet affects you differently, and take diuretics when it is bad.

I have ascites and my GI doctor put me on Lasix and another water pill to take the excess water out. I don't use salt at all. The last ultrasound I had didn't show any fluid, so I'm not sure if he still wants me to continue on them or not.
