I am sorry you are not feeling well

are you having shortness of breath or swelling in your legs?

did your doctors give you water pills like lasix to help you get rid of excessive fluid? this is common for patients who have CHF.

you should watch your weight as well daily. if your weight goes up, it can mean you are retaining fluid
