Hi. I am a 43 year old female. I had a minor stomach surgery in July. Woke up the next day with massive edema- 25 pounds in one day. It's only gotten worse since then, and it has been 3 months. It's non pitting edema, throughout my body. I've seen a rheumatologist, endocrinologist, Primary, Gastroenterologist, and none of them can figure out what is wrong.
I think I might have Hypervolemia, caused by IV fluid overload from the surgery. What area of specialty should I see for this condition? I can't hear another doctor say "it will just take time.":mad:
I've read some articles, but none indicate what type of doctor. Please help!!!!
