So i have posted in the past about how I ended up with edema in my feet and legs. Well the dr put me on water pills and my feet and legs are back to normal. I have lost weight while taking this medication. Im down 20 pounds since August. I'm proud of myself. I have met my pre surgery goal which was 267. I have my date Jan 13 2014. I have to get my A1c down before then.

That's awesome, but is your doctor going to find out WHY you had the edema?
