My husband hates to take his diuretic because of the excessive urination. If he doesn't take it, he gurgles when be breathes, and the lymphedema in his legs gets worse, causing leaking wounds.
His cardiologist is okay with him not taking it everyday, but wants him to take it at least 3 times a week. I'm lucky if I can get him to take it once a week. His wonderful caregiver can usually get him to take it, but if I try, he gets ugly. Do I just let it slide, or do I make an issue of it? Is dying from CHF worse than dying from dementia?
