Well..are you following that limited water intake? How much is the urine output?is it reduced? I suggest you to consult a physician or the cardiologist as the swelling might be due to retention of fluid in body..or due to cardiac drugs you are on....it would have been helpful if you had shared other drugs you are on...third thing is any deep vein thrombosis...so please consult the doctor at the earliest
