The really bad part is that for the last several months I have been having some serious swelling in my legs and feet and recently I have noticed it in my hands. About a year ago my family doc had put me on minor diuretic because I was having the same issues only not quite as bad as I am now. Last year when I ended up in the hospital for pancreatitis they took me off of it and blamed the medicine for the cause of the pancreas getting so angry. I didn't think anything about it really and never really had an issue with the minor swelling. I was a little more concerned about the pancreatitis at the time.
But lately the swelling has been really bad. So bad that I broke down and saw the doctor again. She put me on a different, much stronger, diuretic that would be much easier on my pancreas. I started taking it Saturday. I've already lost 7 pounds of water weight and it's only Tuesday! Apparently I was holding onto some serious fluid. The problem is that now I am in the bathroom twice as much because I have to pee so often. I think I am destine to live my life in the crapper.
