So I have a bit of a weird one. From time to time I suffer from really bad fluid overload who's is usually controlled with 240mg of furosemide and fluid restriction of 750mls which I stick to , which is hard but I am really strict as really want to delay dialysis. I have a fistula and ready to go and my renal function is 7.5%. When I usually get fluid overload it's in both legs and stomach and has been known to be on the lungs too.
Right well this is the weird thing I have fluid overload but just in the right leg and it's very bad lots of pitting and painful too, and worse the more I try and rest it. Has anyone else had this problem? It's 4 kilos, any one got any tips or do we think I need to see my GP or renal consultant or just wait and see?
Any advice much appreciated
