Ascites: Ascites may be due to several causes including liver problems, such as hepatitis, cirrhosis of liver etc. If you do have these problems you can be treated with diuretics or paracentesis. The last resort is liver transplant.
Dr. Douglas Tisdale

Diuretic, drainage: Careful use of drugs to remove fluid from the body (usually diuretic such as spironolactone) helps mild cases, and if severe inserting a catheter though the skin into the abdominal cavity to drain fluid can relieve symptoms. Your best relief is if the liver dissease can be reversed or improved.

Is it a good idea to take pain relief medicine while doing a football tryout?

Self Medication: You do not specify the type of medication. I may take a couple of advil (ibuprofen) before I do something athletic, but i would neve take a prescription medication prior to a workout, or tryout. Too many reasons to list here, but masking real pain, fatigue or euphoria, drug testing etc are just a few. If you are up to the sport - go do it. If not, see a sports medicine physician for help.
