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 had hoped, stumbling on this support group, that it would be a place of shared experiences, and suggested coping mechanisms. Sadly that is not what I am seeing. I don't know how doom and gloom and sarcasm contributes to the strength it takes to live well with this disease. Sad.
Where's my book. Lol. Finished or not, I want to read it Betty. By the way, has this crap been cured yet? Just a humor. I seriously hope you're ok. Looking forward to the chapters. If you can't finish, I'll take the notes. At least I'll know what a friend thought. Signed Bob. Texas born and raised and don't care what anyone thinks of that :) Do care about ya'll though. Especially Betty.

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!
theatre and I are there already. I'm having a very berry tea with crackers, cheese and cherry tomatoes and she's having a joint with some beer and we're both on really comfy recliners on thick pile carpet. we need some help with the decor if anyone is around??
