Fuild backup: Ascitis is a condition of fluid in the soft tissues of the body. It can be caused by obstruction of lymph drainage from the periphery as well as heart failure. If there are symptoms of heart failure, medications can be helpful to improve pump function as well as increase urination. Discuss with his doctor about appropriate therapies.
