Hello!

She needs to be checked by her doctor. Her retaining fluid and the accumulation of swelling in her legs could be caused by her kidneys fmgrowing weaker and having reduced rate of elimination of salts and fluids ....it could relate to get heart having changes as swelling of the legs may be a sign of congestive heart failure ...

She would benefit to keep record of DAILY WEIGHTS...this would be helpful information for her doctor ...

Watch is my she has shortness of breath / heaviness in the chest / very little to no output of urine then these would be signs that she needs to go to the ER.....

I hope that this information is helpful for you

I will be happy to get back with you
