    Swelling in leg, vein issues

    Hey guys, haven't added signature yet, but I've had it all, plus Lupron and radiation plus AUS 800. Now leg swelling due to reflux. Could something w / Aus 800 be restricting blood flow? Already had a stint in clot and ablation. Still swelling... Going to Shands in Gainesville July 24th. Hoping to get in sooner.
    Any advice what to look for? THanks Guys!

    UPDATE; Went to Shands, and Dr there thinks swelling is from Lymphatic system, During Prostectomy, Dr took out 32 lymph nodes to test.... Had CT to insure veins and stint working properly.
    Anyone know how to get rid of lymph fluid in foot and legs? I'm guessing to hear back from Dr after they read the CT.

    Lymphedema is what you may have. Removing a lot of nodes has that risk.

    Drain the fluid.

    Support hose helps a lot of people with this condition, and is usually the least expensive way of dealing with it. Surgical treatments like stents can be done too, preventing the fluid from making it into your legs.

    Diuretics can help relieve the condition as well, but reducing the volume of fluid in your system.

    Its not terribly uncommon, and I don't think its that dangerous.
