This is Dr. David

did your father pass away from his congestive heart failure?

it sounds like he also have kidney problems and wasn't able to urinate as well which an be very serious.

the majory way we treat patients who have congestive heart failure is to help them get rid of excessive fluid with duretics like lasix to force the kidneys to urinate out fluid

but if he has kidney weakness, this can be very difficult to do

I am sorry for your loss if he passed

let me know if you have other questions.
