Is the leg/feet swelling with PRP dangerous. How can it be relieved?

My husband was hospitalized with PRP for 7 days. He is now discharged, but his feet and legs are still very swollen. We weren't given any instruction about this. They were already swollen when he entered the hospital and he was given a diuretic while there. I'm worried that this could be dangerous.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
First of all, I want to clarify what you referred to as PRP. To my knowledge PRP stands for blood plasma that have been enriched with platelets. It can also stand for Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy which is a treatment in which the blood is enriched with platelets to accelerate the healing of bone and soft tissue.
With that said, was your husband receiving Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy while in the hospital for his feet and legs?
