My father had bypass and valve op 2 years ago.. Since that time his ankles have progressively swollen so that it is difficult to take the suggested excercise doctors recommend.. He is on diuretic tablets alongside other medications and in the last couple of days the swelling is spreading further up his legs.. He has tried putting his legs up above the heart level and dietary changes but as I say, this is now getting worse.. He is seeing a doctor tomorrow, but I am worried this is more serious than usual.. The Doctors and Consultants do not want to increase his water tablets because of fear of damaging the kidneys. If any doctors out there can advise, I am very worried this is now a very serious situation for him.. Thank you so much.
