I have swelling in feet, legs & ankles which is edema. Is that the same as pedal edema?
What is Pedal Edema?
The swelling started after starting PLETAL (a platelet inhibitor) and has steadily worsened over the past 5 mos. I have been off of it for 3 days and now only my ankles and tops of feet are swollen. Am I right in assuming the swellling was due to the PLETAL?
Yes. Pedal edema is a swelling of the feet and ankles caused by collection of fluid in the tissues; a possible sign of congestive heart failure (CHF).
