I​'m sorry to hear that you are noticing bluish discoloration of the feet when standing. This is a condition called venous stasis, in which blood that should return to the heart, pools in the legs. The best ways to manage this is to continue the Lasix, and start using compression stockings during the day when you are walking. Compression stockings can be purchased at local medical supply stores, or over the internet (i.e. Amazon).

Please let me know if I can answer any additional questions for you.
