Dear Rieks

Thank you for visiting

Please be so kind as to elaborate on your heart problem, as it is difficult for me to provide you with advice without knowing exactly what is wrong with your heart. It is possible that you are retaining water and your GP can prescribe a mild diuretic, to eleviate the swelling.

Kind regards
