I was amazed one day when I look down and my father's leg and watter was seeping out of it too. His skin in his let looked like if you would have stuck him wifh a pin he would have flown around awhile like a balloon. He has has sone trouble with the leaking a little before. I have compression hoe and should wear them. I seem to be swollen right in the middle of mu stomach and it make's it hart to breath . That's a new one.
We'll have to keep in touchl
I also swell like a ballon. My hands and ankles always have edema. Most the time I can't wear my rings in fear they might have to cut them off. I can easly put on 10 - 25 lbs of water. I take Lasix everyday twice a day for two years now.
First off as the others have posted and they are so very right! You need to keep pushing to figure out what this is. Some PCP's just treat the symptons and never look for the cause. With edema the cause could KILL YOU! After a long period I finally found out I have CHF and at a young age, 37. My mother died at 54 from it, aunt died at 42 and grandfather died at 36. All the same cause CHF.
So many things can cause edema but for your health is your responsibility, be a pain in the docs butt.... I bet you are loved by the people around you make sure they get to love you for years to come...lol
I wish you all the luck....
