Water pills? My GP put me on Lasix and it does help. I lost 4 lbs of water in one day, the third day on an upped dosage.

Hi there, the only thing I can suggest is stool softeners. I am swollen and so bloated that I always wear my shirts outside instead of tucking it in, because the meds make me constipated and I look like I am five months pregnant. So I take stool softeners. It may be worth a try. I hope you feel better soon.

You could also limit the salt you take in, usually a lot of our food already has tons of sodium in it.....of course don't cut it out all together. I end up just trying to lay down and rub the affected areas, not much help but maybe.....
