My father underwent a brain aneurysm repair one and a half years ago, after which, he is having a constant loss of sodium. He is taking one Tolsama 15 mg tablet every alternate day to stabilize his sodium levels. He is also currently taking Encorate Chrono 500, Absolut 3G, Nexfolin and Tamlocept D. I enquired with the neurosurgeon about this, as it is unusual for the sodium loss to continue for such an extended period post-surgery. I was told to contact an endocrinologist for my concerns. What do you suggest to reduce this prolonged sodium loss?
