I have just been prescribed a 2 week course of Furosemide to reduce the amount of fluid in my legs. Currently one of my legs is leaking fluid, in the area of my thigh behind the knee, which is quite difficult to manage as unlike blood, the leakage doesn't seem to stop and just soaks through dressings. I have been given some "waterproof" dressings on prescription, but they have to be ordered in so have yet to see how effective they are. I am currently trying to cope by tying a hand towel around my thigh! Has anyone else had experience of this or have any tips or strategies to help?
Another question is about the medication - GP has said to take it in the morning each day. Can I take it at the same time as the pred?
All advice welcomed!
