Swollen Feet...Sign of Trouble?
« on: September 17, 2006, 05:50:44 PM »
OK.  So those of you reading my posts know I am taking care of my Uncle.  Today his feet are really swollen.  Never happened before.  Calling the doctor on Monday.  What are the possible causes of this?  He has a history as of late of kidney issues.

You mentioned before about his kidney issues, yes?  It's possible he's retaining water.... see about getting him to the doctor to be checked.  You really don't want to go through another episode if there is anything wrong.

Hello Maestro,

I do agree with IzPoz on this one. It could be that he is retaining water, or he is having a kidney malfunction of some sort. Get him to the Doctor and have him checked out. Please keep us posted.

Have the BEST Day!
