I'm Dr. Phil. Can I ask your first name?
Hi Marshall. Nice to meet you.
Can you tell me what medicine she is on?
I my not spell them correcyly, but Phynobarbatol, Dylantin eye drops. She had brain surgury some 40 years ago and a shunt was placed in her to drain as far as i know
Just those two? Any blood pressure pills?
Yes I think so but I don't know which the are.
There is a good chance her pills are causing this swelling Marshall
She has had Grand Mall Serizures in the pass
I suspect her blood pressure meds is causing this
We have ask the doctors and they have said no at Kaiser
We will ask about the blood pressure meds then
Also, I recommend seeing a podiatrist for custom shoes. Has she done this?
We are in the east bay here in California, is there someplace you can have us take her?
We are going to a cobbler to have some made, but the size of here feet is off the charts!
A podiatrist will be able to take custom molds and make them
OK, then that will be on our list
Any more questions Marshall?
Yes. Is there some other place we can see a Doctor to adress just the swelling?
??? what is that and where will we find one?
check out that link
they can help
Did I do excellent work for you today Marshall?
Ok work or Ok I did excellent?
Any other suggestions?
I think she should see an internist and have the cause explored
Heart failure, kidney problems and liver problems are all possible in addition to meds.
If none of this is the case, then it is venous insufficiency and the lymphedema clinic can help
eat a low salt diet and elevate legs when possible
any more questions Marshall?
I guess not and thank you
you're welcome Marshall. Would you be so kind as to rate me positively. I appreciate it. :)
Ok I will start the rating now, and again thank you.
