How can I prevent swollen ankles and feet in pregnancy?

Avoid salt: Swollen feet and ankles are common in pregnancy. As the uterus gets bigger it puts pressure on the blood vessels in the pelvis returning the blood from the legs back to the heart. This can make blood flow slower and increase swelling. Avoiding salt, drinking plenty of water, and elevating your feet can help reduce swelling. Be aware it may not go away until a few weeks after the baby is born.

Ankle swollen &deformed after knee replacement she is 200 lb what is the remedy?

Yes and No: Early in the recovery it is not unusual to have swelling from the knee down into the ankle and foot. With healing proper circulation is reestablished and usually the swelling returns to a more normal state. Ice, elevation, and compression and education may help but if the swelling persist too long more aggressive treatment may be needed. See, your surgeon.

Atarax (hydroxyzine): Atarax (hydroxyzine) does not cause itching rather, stopping the drug causes the suppressed itch to come out once again.
