 Does anyone suffer this in their stomach? When do you consider to have it removed?

@Hidden username‍ I responded to your other question. As far as getting it removed? Do you mean the fluid build up? I am not sure about surgical options, but try to monitor it with limiting salt, diuretics and speak to your doctor.

Is it causing you abdominal pain?

I get swelling in my abdomen . I currently take two differnet types of Lasik. One helps remove fluid while protecting my potassium level. I recently had an ultrasound of the abdomen. I was told that it would be important to find out what is causing the fluid build-up . One cause can be liver issues. No significant fluid was found but will be rechecked in 6 months. My bigest suggestion would be to find out what is causing the fluid build up . Is it actually fluid buildup or something else.  The doctor would determine if fluid needs to be removed based on the cause. It can be removed by sticking a needle through the abdomen and abstracting .

It is called ascites and it hurts! My belly swells so much after an average size meal I am uncomfortable for hours! Gastrologist thinks I may have diabetic gastroparesis. Going for procedures and tests next week.
