thank you for your reply....I have kind of been worried about the pneumonia issue with the wheezing and fever. I know this is a dumb questions...but should I let me surgeon know about this? Or just call my internist? I have an appointment with my internist Friday, should I call before then? Do you have any ideas what could be causing the extreme fluid retention? It is worse today. This past surgery is my 6th major surgery in 3 years. After the last surgery my liver enzymes were elevated for the first time....that is what my internist is checking friday...along with my potassium level....i have had problems with my potassium being low.....sorry if this is too much info....i wouldn't think the bloating has anything to do with potassium levels....could it have anything to do with possible liver problems? I apologize if these are dumb questions.
