I too have had frequent swelling of the hands and feet. I suffer from chronic kidney stones and also take htcz. My dr has done bloodwork during some of these episodes and has found decreased kidney function, not to an alarming rate though. I usually drink 1 to 1 1/2 gallons of fluids a day and urinate only twice a day. My new urologist has just found that my ureter was narrowed from birth causing urine to stay in my kidney which was also probably causing the formation of stones.
I'm having surgery monday to laser to tube open and put in a large stent for 6 weeks to see if this will help. I don't know if your daughter could possibly have something with her tube also because mine was from birth, just a thought.
I wish you the best, blessings and peace,
