I am 44 years old. Post-op Gastric Bypass (BPD). With weight lose I did loose my high blood pressure problem, servere sleep apnea.
I have not been able to get off my HCTZ for water retention. If I miss a couple days I will gain about 10 lbs of water weight. I notice it first with my shortness of breath. My DR. doesn't ever seem to give me an answer as to what causes this. I hear that my years of undiagnosed servere sleap apnea could have damaged my heart? I do have periods when at rest my heart rate seems to race and get an increase in breathing. this usually passes in 10-15 min. My Dr's seem to be keeping and eye on my blood work. I have low iron, E, B12. feel pretty weak alot of the time.
Time for another Doctor?
