Hello!
Morphine will cause CONSTIPATION but should cause swelling of extremities....

It sounds that you should seek further medical evaluation // heart and kidney functions should be checked...your blood pressure checked //
Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 5 months ago.

Are you short of breath?

Keep track of daily weights as fluid gain may cause steady rapid weight gain..

I have to worry that it could be a result of congestive heart failure as the top concern here

You may be best to get checked now at ER !!

At LEAST see doctor tomorrow...

Renal insufficiency / heart trouble are among chief concerns for you!!
