Unhappy water retention problem

[COLOR="Plum"]Hi i am on gleevac 400 kg. i have a major water retention problem. My face, eye lids, cheeks get swollen. I know facial odema is part of the side effects. But i also end up having swelling on my ankles, knees and tummy. infact some days are so bad that my clothes beocme tighter. Then i have to take lasix to get releif. But i am looking at a natural solution to the problem as lasix has its own side effects. What can I do? I hate to look at my face in the mirror these days as it makes me appear fatter than ususal and I have big eyes which look smaller and puffy. Please advise is there a home remedy or something else like any exercise??[/COLOR]
