Thank for asking to HCM
If your mother have congestive heart failure then the swelling of leg wont go with compression bandage, such compression only works when there is obstruction in returns of the blood through veins, but if it is congestive hear failure disease then the mechanism of swelling is far different, and for that she needs complete cardiac evaluation, and with right treatment this thing will go away, discus it with cardiologist , take care of her bye
