My mother is 89 years old and suffering from swollen and hard legs. Is fuerosomide advised in this condition ?
My mother is 89 years of age, in great condition and has all her facilities. Recently her legs have been swollen legs and also hard to the touch. She is on fuerosomide (10mg. 2 x s a day), but it doesn’t seem to be helping. This has been going on for about a week or so. We’ve seen a doctor and no real answers. Can you advise?
Swelling in feet could be - heart / liver / or kidney problem or poor nutrition/ or DVT.
Get BUN/Creatinine/ Albumin/ Urine routine and microscopy get a physician to evaluate.
Restrict salt and fluid intake till then should help
