Hello again,I was waiting for your reply.
I am sorry for your symptoms.The swelling of the lower part is likely due to collection of fluid.Due to gravity, the swelling appears on standing or sitting postures.There can be a few conditions which can lead to the swelling.These causes can be diseases of the heart, kidney, liver, low blood protein etc.Other local factors like varicose vein, clot in the vein, venous or lymphatic obstruction needs to be excluded too.However, those usually affect one side.Sometimes no cause can be evident though.As you have a history of Hep B, liver causes need to be checked.I would advise to take an examination by doctor.You would need a few tests like doppler ultrasound, EKG, echo, blood metabolic panel etc.Then treatment can be directed to the cause.Water pill or diuretic can be prescribed by doctor to reduce the swelling.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.Wish your early recovery.Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.Regards.
