    Smile My grandmother's experience

    Hi! I just entered this forum out of curiosity.
    My grandma used to suffer from such problems too --- water retention for instance and it became very difficult for her to climb the stairs.
    In fact, it once hurt so much, she could not walk for 3 days.

    I'm not here to promote this product but my grandma used it and she experienced visible results. My family and I witnessed her transformation from having difficulty in walking to regaining her speedy walk again!

    So i hope that this socks might help you, just as it had helped my grandma.
    It's called Bonvolant compression socks.

    If you need more information or are curious, please reply.

    P.S. This is really a marvelous health care forum!

    Re: My grandmother's experience

    Compression socks are available through most medical supply stores. However, she should probably ask her doctor first. Severe water retention could be a sign of kidney problems or congestive heart failure, and if she has diabetes or circulatory problems, compression socks may be a bad idea.

    However, the socks can be extremely helpful for swelling following surgery on the feet or legs. They can also reduce leg fatigue in people who must stand in one spot for long periods of time.

    My mom has the socks and love it. She brought it in Thailand for US$100 a pair. She told me that the socks were made in America and want me to buy her a couple more pairs. I can't seem to find them in San Francisco area, and did the internet search - that was where I found your post.
