My mom had a kidney removed 18 months ago because of kidney cancer. Her one kidney has been functioning at a 27% level. Our concern is the amount of swelling in her right leg. Nothing she takes will reduce the swelling. She can no longer wear shoes. Has anyone else had this issue?
We are concerned as it seems her health is declining because of this.
Among other health issues she has... Diabetic, congestive heart failure, COPD, on oxygen 12 hours a day ( should be 24/7 ) and a tumor on her lower back which causes her great pain.
The swelling though is what really bother's her the most.
Can anyone give me some idea's what we can do to help my mom or what is going on.
The only thing we've been told is, since it'sthe right kidney that was removed it's an overflow issue.
