First the fluid retention was my posterior head, which I noticed at night from the straps of my Bipap machine, which I also have needed for the last six or seven years. I now have +3 edema in my legs after 12 hour work days at my hospital, which resolves to a +1 edema overnight. I have had a substantial weight gain resistant to dieting for the last 4 or so years of about 20 pounds.
