Surgeon-phlebologist-lymphologist, surgeon of the first category

After the operation, four days passed by the elbow. On the elbow to the hand a plaster cast, in the area of ​​the elbow the seams. The hand has swollen and does not sleep at night. The doctor prescribed Furasemide diuretic tablets (0.04 g) once a day. The tablet practically does not give a reaction. I weigh 81 kg. Can a small dose? How and what else to remove the edema in this situation?

If the gypsum causes pronounced edema, it is necessary not to drink diuretics, but to shift a lingette or bandage.

Sincerely, Elena Belyanina.

I do athletics. During training, when there is a load on the legs, caviares start to ache terribly. →
