I'm glad I found this group. This question is so much about the heart surgery. I was wondering if anyone did anything for the nurses that took care of them in the hospital

Susan Lynn  I had my surgery in December and the floor conference room was loaded with fruit baskets, candy, and flowers - I suspect from patients and vendors. I did, ... Read more
Civita Fahey  I got them pastries the day I left.. they were extremely appreciative and it was the least I could do for them being so wonderful.
Barbara Wood  My hubby brought a basket of wrapped truffles that I offered to anyone who came in my room - went through about 80 in 4 days! - & I wrote down all my nurses ... Read more

I'm doing good. The only thing is I keep retaining fluid. The keep giving me lasix but they want it down more. Anyone else have to deal with this

Dan Baltazor  Yes, but the Lasix worked. It took about a day and half
jennifer jacobs  Oh good. Tomorrow is day 5
Debbie Moriarty  Not to worry I don’t think, Jennifer. It took me two weeks to get rid of the fluid! I’m still on Lasix but down to once a day. I’m on another diuretic ... Read more
Rita Savelis  Retaining fluid is normal after OHS, alas. I took Lasix for a month.... I hear you, it's a real drag.
Barbara Wood  I took it for at least two weeks. I think it took about 2 weeks to get rid of the extra fluid.
