Fluid Retention- Furosemide

8 weeks ago I was diagnosed with AFIB. I retained a lot of fluid which I lost while in the hospsital due to the constant IV Diuretics I lost 15 pounds of water. Now at home I regained 10 pounds even though I am only eating less than 1800 calories per day and trying to drink less than 40 ozs of fluid.. My Doctor just upped my Furosemide 20 mg to 4 tablets a day.

I just had my first succesful cardioversion and out of AFIB for now. Any ideas to hasten the fluid loss? It can be very uncomfortable. Thanks

    I can walk about 50 feet before I have to rest, now that is improving since my cardioversion. Thanks TR! I hope all is well.
