Hello Mother Zee, Thank you for the question.
Do you know what liver disease your mother had? Liver disease varies widely, can include hepatitis, fatty liver, liver abscess, liver failure, liver cirrhosis, and liver tumors (hepatoma / hepatocellular carcinoma). An enlarged stomach can be caused by an enlarged liver or ascites. Ascites is a buildup of fluid in the abdominal cavity, which can be caused by heart failure, kidney failure, liver failure, cirrhosis, and liver cancer. In addition to an enlarged stomach, sufferers can also experience shortness of breath, stomach pain, weight gain, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite. Because the information you provide is limited, I'm sorry I can't explain further.
Although herbal medicines are widely used by Indonesians, there is no medical research that can confirm the effect of using herbal medicines to cure diseases.
Please you should consult with an internal medicine specialist who treats your mother. Doctors need to do a number of tests to find out the cause and determine the next treatment. Please discuss with your doctor the cause of your mother's condition, don't hesitate to ask the doctor if you still have any questions.
If you still have further questions, feel free to make a new one.
Hope this information is helpful.
