my 85 yrs oldmother has been generally well. hypertension is her only health issues. ankle swelling began last year but it would be ok with a furosemide diuretic,this week her ankle and legs swell so i rushed her to A & E. i suspect congestive heart failure.
the dr said she had normal ecg , i read sinus rhythm with frequent ventricular complexes and premature atrial complexes nonspecific ST and T wave abnormality abnormal ecg. why would the dr tell me it's normal ecg does it mean she's ok.furosemide was prescribed and we were discharged that night. 2days passed and her swelling hasn't changed a bit.
/she was not admitted in the hospital and ordered bloodtests.. the nurse called me to talk about the result and i was surprised that the nurse said she has diabetes .for those who is suffering with CHF please give me some insights soi would brace myself.
what medications , diet or lifestyle modifications must she do?
