Well what do you think having lower extremity bilateral edema feels like? Maybe affects mobility? Maybe affects circulation? Maybe affects self esteem? Maybe affects skin integrity?

What is the edema related to?

Cardiac related(R sided HF)?

Renal related(deceased UOP)?

Hepatic(decreased albumin levels)?

Think think think!

What do YOU think?
