I recently had bypass surgery and on having post op chest xray at my surgeon discovered fluid build up on my right lung. (About 40%). He offered me a choice between taking Furosemide or having it drained manually, I chose the drug. Only been on it for 2 days and urinating constantly and can't be more than 10 feet away from the bathroom. Should I just go in and have it drained and be done with it?
Hello kwkurtz44. Years ago I had a collapsed lung and it had to be drained prior to surgery. It can be a very pain full and uncomfortable procedure to have a vial hanging outside your chest, collecting fluid. I would remain on the Furosemide, if you can put up with the bathroom trips.
