i noticed that everytime i have back surgery,4, i get edema in my foot ankles and leg which gets worse everytime. i went to dr and i do not have congestive heart failure. i don't have trouble breathing or have a cough and all of the other symptoms. have any of you had swelling in foot legs and or ankles? it is troubling, but dr reassures me that it is not that bad. it is so bad now that i am getting ulcers in my legs. water pills do seem to help some but she is going to up my dose and i am to get kidney checked this week
any input? any of you have edema which is not heart related?
