Case 47 – the beginning

Welcome to our new case! This week we start in a GP surgery. Our patient is a 60 year old gentleman who has come to see you with some ankle swelling. 
He saw your partner 4 weeks ago with the same problem and was started on furosemide 20mg. He has come for his follow up appointment following this.
What do you want to know in the history? Is there any other information you need? How would you like to proceed from here?
Join us on Twitter @TeamHaem and let us know what your thoughts are, what questions you have and what you want to do as we see this case evolve over the next week. Remember to use #teamhaem on all your posts to help us follow the case! Please note – all cases on TeamHaem are entirely fictional to protect patient confidentiality.
