My 92 year old mother has a swollen feet
When we read that such extremities could be slightly elevated we did and it seems to work but with a little challenge. Now it appears the fluid is retained in her bodies. Her thighs are now heavy with fluid that was in the feet. To increase chances of finding solutions, we have reduced her water/ fluid intake. We have expected that her urination would continue. How can we further reduce the fluid in her thighs?
