This is Dr. David
swelling in the thighs can come from peripheral nerve damage causing your blood vessels not to work well
it can also come from low blood albumin levels
or weakness of your heart
you might benefit from compression stockings for your legs up to your thighs to help squeeze out fluid out of your thighs
elevation of your legs up above your heart can also help pull fluid out of your legs.
have you tried to elevate your legs up before?
try elevating your legs and see if that helps decrease the swelling in your thighs.
ask your doctor about compression stockings to see if that helps.
have your doctor check your albumin levels
let me know if you have other questions.
