Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Thank you for the advice. I believe you may have misunderstood my point.
I was content with prescribing water tablets for oedema - I would have expected that.I was happy to take the tablets and boy! they did what one expected and I wore the carpet out back and forth to the toilet.
My point of contention was the swelling continued due to the fact that I maintained for the key four days my fluid intake at usual levels.
Had I been appropriately advised to limit intake to 1.5 litres/day on first taking them the benefit would have been received.
I was not aware how crucial the fluid embargo was till properly advised by the Denmark cardiologist. He made it seem so obvious to me when he explained the vicious cycle that needed breaking.
Does this alter your view now and subsequent advise?
Thank you for your kind attention
Thanks for your view
As a layman, I. Have now to decide between your synopsis and the Danish Hospital Consultant Cardiologist.
It seems you both would professionaly disagree.
Should I get one of your colleagues to arbitrate? What is polite and the correct protocol in these cases.?
At the risk of appearing dumb what's an 8 dollar question?
