I am sorry you are having such bad swelling of your thighs
at your age of 86, surgery corrections can be very risky if not impossible.
but you can have doppler ultrasound studies to check for poor circulation and narrowed blood vessels in your legs
sometimes swelling in the legs can be due to lymphedema or pooling of lymphatic fluid in the legs from poor lymphatic circulation.
compression stockings in the legs and leg elevation and lymphedema massage therapy can help push out lymphatic fluid out of the legs.
if you have abnormal venous blood flow in your groin area, you might need a stent in your femoral vein or artery that can be placed by interventional vascular techniques.
a CT angiogram of your pelvis and iliac and femoral arteries and veins can help look at these veins.
have you had these studies performed?
