I for once or maybe twice need to ask a ... lol I keep retaining fluid... I thought at first it was my heart for they said I had an enlarged heart..did a cath. and my heart doc told me on the machine that my heart didn't appear enlarged..so I said why would the report say it is then n scare me half 2 death for my sis passed in 2010 due to same issue with hardening on arteries..anyway cath said no blockage..so was happy to hear... but still retaining fluid even being on lasix..when I stop the lasix it comes back again... any ideas... I do suffer from mh which I no won't cause it..lol Also have chronic pancreatitis..any input would be great..love u all..angel1662
dear--from what you have written, retaining fluid has continued for long.If Pancreatis was detected long back and turned into chronic, i think that is most probable cause.Some typical and hereditory issues can lead to this complication.Your treatment includes Life style changes and second opinion.You must limit alcohol if consuming.Even Heart sholud be monitored for failure.good luck
Hi .angel. Also be very careful with salt intake. I ate chips of various sorts for three days in a row. The effect was obvious. Since salt is ubiquitous in our food, avoid the obvious sources. It takes a lot of water to get rid of too much salt.
I will say that a radiologist told me that I was developing left sided thickening of the heart and that it is enlarging. My pulmonary doctor said it is doing well and nothing needs to be done. The cardiologist didn't see any real problem. They all said that it is highly likely because of the lungs. So I am saying that what is said always needs to be explored further. There is no logical reason with this. I hope you are feeling better now with your news. Karen
