Edema Swelling and Distended Gut - December 6 2012

Woke with decreased urine output throughout the night, felt bloated and swollen in my gut - much like I felt on 14 Nov 2012 after the 3rd week of carfilzomib in Cycle 1. My heart is pounding and I'm a tad out of breath. I have no swelling in my feet and legs, but my gut is distended and my face swollen (moon facies).  I decided to take 4 mg of Lasix. That helped increase my urine output, but my gut continued uncomfortable and distended. I took a Phillips Tablet and Senna-S without relief. I've been pretty miserable all day.

I ate little throughout the day and went to bed early.
