Hi, with what you have described, I believe it's high time you have yourself evaluated by a specialist, a gastroenterologist. Just to give you some ideas, this progressive enlargement of your abdominal area can mean several things. One is that you may have some form of bowel obstruction causing your intestines to become dilated. Another possibility is that there can be excess fluid inside your abdomen called 'ascites' as what we would see in patients with liver problems. This enlargement of the abdomen can also be due to enlarged organs such as the spleen or liver. I suggest you have yourself seen by a specialist. Imaging studies in the form of ultrasound or ct scan of the abdomen may be warranted. Regards.

Hi, I have a 36 year old brother that i am very concerned about. The last year he went for blood work and has been told his liver is not good. My brother likes to drink occasionally mainly whisky. He is not taking no medication as of right know. Lately I've noticed that he is constantly rubbing his left side and i asked whats happening, and he just says it hurts, know hes complaining the right side hurts. I've asked him to go see a doctor but always refuses. I think he's just scared! I'm very frusterated and worried about my brother. I just don't know whats happening to him and if theres something i can do or suggest. Thank you
