Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Some causes for feet and ankle swelling may be caused by weight. Excess body mass can decrease blood circulation, causing fluid to build up in the feet, legs, and ankles. Standing or sitting for long periods. When the muscles are inactive, they can't pump body fluids back up toward the heart. The retention of water and blood can cause swelling in the legs. An injury of some sort can cause the foot or ankle to swell as also.

Lasix is a diuretic that removes excess water from the body. Did the medication work at all? Have you had any testing for any sort of health conditions that may cause this?
