I know fluid is a big problem for many of us and I believe the fluid I have is attributed more to the cirrhosis than the cancer. Does anyone take something other then Aldactone for fluid retention? It just doesn't seem to work for me. I am on 200mg/day but still have huge ankles, legs and abdomen. The skin half-way down my calf is red, hot & enormous. of course they have offered to do a paracentesis for my abdomen but I don't want it right now. I took a Lasix one night but I ended up with a dangerous electrolyte imbalance and heart arrhythmia which I guess is why they haven't prescribed it to me. I would just like to have 24 hours with my ankles back...LOL
