Thank you for your question.

I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

I feel he needs to be seen in a hospital or ER.

Bad sunburn can cause swelling.

But swelling of legs, pain can come from other conditions too like a clot.

Failure of heart can cause swelling of legs.

As he had heart attack in June he needs to be careful about cardiovascular effects.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
