I am 7 weeks post- op today. I feel better and better each day. My surgeon is releasing me to go back to work in 2 more weeks. I am now doing 2 2 mile walks per day. I gained a lot of water weight after surgery and I lost it with in 2 weeks but I am now struggling to loose anymore weight. I guess I am wondering if it is safe to take any kind of all natural weight loss products to help me? If anyone knows the answer to this question please share.
I am wondering if anyone can answer this question. Is it normal to retain a little bit of water and swell? I am almost 7 weeks post-op. I had mitral valve repair and I feel better then ever. But, last night I happen to look down and my right leg seemed swollen like it is retaining a little bit of water. Before the surgery, I retained a lot of water and I was on 40mg of Lasix. After, the surgery I gained a lot of weight because of water I was retaining but I lost all the weight within about 2 weeks after the surgery. I am still on 40 mg of Lasix and I have no shortness of breath. Last night was the first night I saw any swelling and so far today there is no swelling. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you for any comments or advice.
