    Hello, Danodragon!  I understand that the thing you want most right now is the ability to get some sleep.  You mentioned that your a-fib had been "fixed".

    Perhaps the fluid in your lungs is not a problem related to  your a-fib. I hope you are seeing  your primary care doctor or a doctor who specializes in lung disorders. What doctor has given you the prescription for Lasix to treat the fluid problem?  There have not been many posts in our forum about having a problem similar to yours, but I hope those who have will share their experiences with you.   I am hoping that you are able to get some sleep soon.  Let us know how you are doing.

    Wishing  you the best,

    Can you please clarify what you mean by CEE? Since I was not familiar with that term, I looked it up and all I can find is that an electrical cardioversion is called a CEE in Spain. But, a cardioversion does not fix afib (it only puts the heart into normal rhythm, which is often just temporary). I can't figure any way that a cardioversion could cause fluid on the lungs.

    Is it possible that you have been in afib so long that you went into heart failure, and that is why you have fluid on the lungs? 

    Please clarify for us so we understand better how to help you.
