    Hi there from down LOUISIANA way! So sorry you have had to endure so much in the past few years.

    Could your legs, ankles and feet be swollen because of fluid build-up? Or, maybe because of steroids/cortisone? Sometimes certain medications cause a build-up of fluid. Have you spoke with your doctor about the swelling yet? Maybe a fluid pill would help? I know, I know, you're probably taking lots of pills now as it is and the LAST thing you want is to add to the pile, but maybe just until the swelling is gone?

    The best thing to do here is to speak with your doctor. Only a trained professional could/should guide you.

    Good luck, cher. Hope things work out for you. Keep us posted on your progress, hear?
