Im new to this board but i jus have a ?
M husband has severe copd has had it for years and just within the last few weeks his ankles and feet have been swelling to the point they are changing colors and they are huge and hurt to walk and move around. Has anyone with copd ever expierenced this?
My 67 yr old mother has this problem. She can't sit for long periods of time with her feet down.( like at the kitchen table) She keeps her feet prop up. She is not on meds for it, YET. She has severe COPD as well. When they are swollen she complains her feet hurt. So far the swelling has only stayed at her feet. When she first told us about it her right foot was discolored. Doctors don't know why. Last week I saw her feet when the nurse came for her weekly visit and the color was back to normal. From what I've read this sometimes happens with people with COPD. I don't know if I helped but I wanted you to know hes isn't the only one. Take care.
