Customer Question
My left foot is...

My left foot is swollen ever since I cam home from the Hospital after a bad bout of pneumonia. I am a 78 year-old female and am 5' 3" and 102 lbs. What can I do about it?

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

No injuries. Three weeks. I also have had erratic blood pressure very high in the am (165-1850) and low at night (95-110) taking 160 and after taking 160mg Diovan in the morning and 6.2mg Coreg twice a day.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Had ultrasound on legs no blood clots.

I do't know how to do that.
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 1 year ago

No problem

Is it just the foot that's swollen and no part of the leg?

Any pain or change in skin color?

And was the ultrasound because of the swelling?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
