Husband was in biz trip the whole week. He had much alcohol every day for 6 days. In day 6, both of his ankle were swelling, he couldn't put on his shoes. In day 7 he had a 7-hour flight home, then had a long long sleep, now the swelling almost fades, at least I can see the ankle bone clearly, but still feel a bit weird, guess the swelling not completely going away. He has high blood pressure, diabetes, is on BP meds and two blood sugar meds, one of them is long-lasting. He visits his cardiologist every quarter, last time his kidney and liver function were all good. He has two small cysts in kidney, and has slight blockage(<25%) and calcification in one of his heart arteries, heart valve slightly thicken(6 months ago) due to high cholesterol. He didn't feel anything other than the swelling feet. His urination was all normal. Now I wonder he needs to go to a specialist right away or not? Since the swelling is going away, does it mean the acute thing might not be found in either bloor or urine? What do you think causes the swelling? Thank you.
