I'm wondering why are my husband's feet still swollen when on lasix (furosemide)?

Depends: Depends on 1) what's causing the leg swelling - could be a heart problem, a kidney problem, a liver problem, or just sluggish leg veins, 2) if he's eating salt which makes the body retain water and interferes with the lasix, (furosemide) and 3) what's the dose of Lasix (furosemide) - the effective dose is 20 mg daily for some and 400 for others.

Go get an xray: You need to make sure it isn't broken. Delaying treatment could jeopardize healing. If the fracture needs to be reset you want to know. If there is any break in the skin, you want to prevent infection. Stay off of it until you can have it checked. ...Read more

Plantar fibroma: If what you are referring to is in the arch of the foot, it probably is a plantar fibroma. These growths usually occur in the mid-arch of the foot and can be first treated conservatively with accommodative insoles or orthotics to offload the weightbearing of the fibroma. When offloading does not reduce the weightbearing enough, the fibroma can be surgically removed. ...Read more

Not overdose: 50 mg of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a standard adult dose; taking 50 mg more six hours later would be appropriate, so 25 mg after 4 hours isn't usually a problem. If the symptoms are progressing from rash to foot swelling, he should see a doctor. ...Read more

Neuritis related.: It is always nice to know if this problem happened quickly, over night so to speak, or slowly over along period of time. With no history of acute trauma, more than likely the nerve or soft tissue, in the area, has been subtly irritated. The possibilities could be shoes, standing or any related activity. The best way to get to the bottom of the issue is to be evaluated by a specialist. ...Read more

Why Wait...: These are always tough to deal with. Important information is necessary: pedal pulses, pedal temperature, on foot or both, open sores, presence of diabetic neuropathy and how controlled of a patient with diabetes is he? I would get him to a foot specialist and/or his internist/ diabetologist as soon as tomorrow. I practice by the motto: give diabetes an inch and it will take a foot. ...Read more

My husband had hip replacement 10 yrs ago on left hip. Now he's having severe pain in the center of his incision and foot on that side stays swollen.

Old hip replacement: Hello. I suggest that your husband be seen by his doctor who performed the surgery or at least one of that doctor's colleagues to rule out any issues with his hardware- like loosening. Life span of hip arthroplasties are around 15-20 years but your husband could be near the life end of his current hardware. ...Read more
