The past few days his feet have been swelling-not just his ankles,although he is urinating-not as much.
Last time his ankles were swollen,we kept his feet up and it went down by the morning.
His hospice nurse said a little edema is very common in the elderly especially w/ the warm weather and also when you are not moving around too much.
Did anyone experience this sleeping change?
I have ovarian cancer and fibromyalgia also. My sleep pattern is very messed up. I go sometimes two nights without being able to fall asleep. Then I sleep 17 to 18 hours or so. I don't know what causes it, it just happens. Also my feet swell too. Wish I had an answer for you.
