hello there
I understand your concern
Electrolyte disbalance is always an issue in decongestion therapy which precipitates VPCs which need to be stabilised with correction of electrolytes

It is not an acute issue now but care has to be taken regarding your fluid intake and output in future for a recurrence not to occur
Hope that helps
