My husband has been having some real bad sharp pains in his stomach, and hurting in his back, the last few days. He's not sleeping at night, in the bathroom alot. Last night he had the dry heaves, was light headed and had diarea (Bad spelling). There was no blood (he said). His urine has been lighter than normal, going from dark tea to a light tea color. We have not changed his diet at all, with the exception of Boost every day, but that was 3-4 weeks ago. The only change other than that has been the Furosemide. His doctor told him to take it according to the prescript
ion, 2 tabs a day for a week and then cut back to every other day. It causes him to have what he calls "Sparklies", flashes in his perifreal vision, and it doesn't seem to help with the Acities and Adema much at all. He does not like taking the lasiks.
I want him to go to the ER, and he won't go because he doesn't want to miss his TP Evaluation in PA. He wants to wait, tolerate it, and address it with them up there.
We're going to stop the Boost, and see what happens. Wish us luck!
