Aww happy to know you will be getting some relief-but those water tablets come with running to the bathroom, some calcium loss as well. It helps to keep your feet elevated and to drink less fluids as well. I was on water tablets for over 10 years-so I learnt that some work better than some-listen to your body, ask to change to a milder drug if you feel that it is too aggressive-but with lots of patience your feet should soon be normal-get lots of rest too-that helps with the swelling.
