Personally I doubt this GP will believe you given his prior assessment of the situation. GPs tend to have little faith in herbal type medication, and he likely won't take your self report as good evidence it was all due to water retention.

You can certainly mention your experience to him, but in your shoes I wouldn't make an appt with him just to tell him this. I might mention it almost as an aside at some other appointment.

Lastly, I think many otherwise healthy people might lose an easy 5 pounds by taking a diuretic for a few days. I'm not myself convinced this is the best evidence it was due to water retention!
