My swelling is a chronic thing which has been treated since I was in my 30's.
All kinds of specialists have seen me and prescribed diuretics, ace bandages (which I cannot put on) and those tight stockings which I can't put on and cut into my ankle also.

One doctor told me I have venous insufficiency but do not have heart failure.

I asked the question , "Does anyone else have this problem" as I wanted to hear from those who have and what they did about it.

I did NOT go to the ER as I know what they would tell me after running the tests I have already had run.

My shoe was easier to put on this morning so I assume the swelling has gone down some but couldn't take the diuretic until I got home from church.

So I hope this will put your mind at ease. Thanks, my friends, for caring.
