Will it be advisable for her to take 20mg lasik. I know a family member, she is holding so much fluid in her body and is so badly swollen that she has a real seepage problem in her hands and feet, she is short of breath which indicates she has fluid in he

Hello, You: Hello,

you might have entered your question by mistake into ophthalmology forum instead of cardiology or internal medicine forum. Lasik in eye doctor terms is a laser vision correction procedure. Lasix, or furosemide, is a diuretic that removes excess of water from a body.

Your relative would need to see a doctor to get a prescription and you might be right about Lasix but she may need more than one med to help her condition. Finding out the reason why your relative is resisting getting medical help may help you persuade her to see a doc.

Hope it helps!
best wishes,
irina ganelis, M.D.
