Charlotte's new liver

You may not understand this but anyone who has an extreme case of ascities is put on a tap to drain it out of the abdomen! Sounds really painful, the local anaesthetic stings but it’s a weird sensation when the tap is going in as you can feel it wiggling around.. I’m not even going to get started on the size of the needle for all you needle phobics out there!
