Hello. In the last 6 months my calves, ankles and knees have protruded outward. It is embarrassing to wear leggings or jeans with the big buldge in my lower leg. The meds the doc put me on are not working for the edema. Does anybody know if anything surgically can be done for it?
I am not sure of what you are taking but the standard medication for edema is basic. I had an extreme adverse reaction to it and not only did I gain weight but it caused both kidney and liver failure. I am now on Spironolactone which is the generic form of Aldactone. Hope this is helpful. I have slight swelling of feet and legs but suffer abdominal swelling. The type of medication you are given is dependent on your form of edema.
