If both feet are swollen, it's not the feet, but water ...Read more

Leg elevation,: sodium and fluid restriction, diuretic meds, and inotropic meds. Usually takes some time for it to go away, few days to weeks, even if optimally treated.

What to do if I had pulmonary edema during gall bladder removal in 2011. the radiology report reads..the cardiac silhouette?

Surgery-related: It may have been related to surgery. If you have had no symptoms since the surgery then I would simply ask your doctor if a repeat chest x-ray needs to be done. The x-ray report will discuss the 'cardiac silhouette' which just refers to how the outline of the heart looks on x-ray. ...Read more

My mother has fdiffuse Cerebral Edema Because of Cardiac arrest. She is Having Little Body Movements, Little Eye Opening but No concious yet.

Tough problem: The edema is from leakage from vessels and cells which were deprived of oxygen and blood supply while the heart was stopped. This prevents them from working. Depending upon the length of time the brain was deprived as well as the resistance of the cells, as the edema clears there will be some recovery. There is no simple way to predict the timing; hopefully there will be much to gain.l ...Read more
