My right foot is very swollen and becomes more inflammed at times. This started when I was pregnant. Saw a specialist and wore compression hose for a while. My daughter is now 19 months old so I am afraid that the swelling is permanent. I cannot fit into my shoes on my right foot, but my left foot still fits most of my shoes. Left foot is slightly wider than before too. Do you think this is lymphedema and do you think it may be permanent. If not, I would like to know how it may be treated so I can be normal with conformed feet again. Read about Sequential Gradient Pump Therapy and Complete Decongestive Therapy but these seem to be for very severe cases. Do you think these therapies would help?
Unfortunately, it is impossible to give you a reliable answer without personally assessing your symptoms. We recommend visiting a local Rheumatologist for diagnosis.
