Brief Answer:
Add another diuretic.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on HealthcareMagic.
I can understand your concern.
If double dose of bumetanide is not working, we should add another strong diuretic like frusemide or aldectone.
Strict fluid restriction to less than 1. 2 liter is advisable.
If still you worsen then Intravenous diuretics is needed.
Serum protein level and hemoglobin should be checked because hypoproteinemia and anemia can also cause worsening pedal edema.
Please let me know
1. What is your 2d echo report?
2. Have you ever undergone serum protein level?
Please reply me answers of above asked questions, so that I can guide you better. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
