Help for swollen feet and legs?
My legs and feet began to swell about 6 months ago. In the past week, they've become much more swollen. Lying in bed doesn't help, nor does elevation. My lung doctor can't seem to tell me if he can get them down or not, but the skin is breaking in a few small places and they're beginning to also swell above the knee. I am going out today to buy bigger shoes. It's really uncomfortable and hard to walk on the puffy swollen soles of my feet. I had tests to see if there was a clot, but that isn't the problem. He said it was due to lack of oxygen in my blood, which makes sense, but I just wonder is there no hope, or will they be like this forever?

I was diagnosed with COPD last year but I just found out that I'm in the later stages. I quit my job so that I could get disability. Now I have no money and have to be on oxygen for properly for the rest of my life. I smoked for 41-years and now I'm paying the price.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
