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.

I am 36 year old. Currently in my 9th month of pregnancy. Expected to deliver on 9th March 2013. Had a miscarriage (missed abortion ) last year in January. This is my first child. My BP is around 136 - 90. Problem: Had been suffering from swollen feet (not thighs and ankles) for a few months off and on. The Doc said that this was normal and prescribed leg elevation. For the last one month, the entire two legs, right from thigh to calves to feet are swollen badly and it reaally pains when touched as well. Have trouble walking as well. My mother has a problem with swollen legs as well due to some nerve issues/ blood circulation problem. Please advise.
