I wwrote a short posting a couple of weeks ago, so this one will be brief. I am doing much better each and ebery day. The biggest problem I am having is getting this new congested heart failure under control. It is normally treated with medication, an ACE inhibitor and a diuretic. The problem had been this I have not been able to tolerate any of different types of diuretics available. They all cause nausea and vomiting. Without them, I have severe water retention, swelling in myy legs, shortness of breath. Until I can find something that I can literally stomach, I wait until the swelling hets really bad and then take a diuretic along with something for the nausea like Reglan or Zofan. This is crazy, but I have not found a better option.
I have been readin all of the postings lately and am glad everyone is going OK. My prayers and thoughts go to those having a difficult time.
