Why do I have swelling on my feet?

Q: I am a 56 years old woman having oedema on the feet. I have taken water tablets for 10 days but there was no relief. It happens only in hot seasons. I have checked my blood, kidney and liver and all are fine. I had hysterectomy done 9 years ago. Why do I have oedema on my feet? What is the treatment for this?

A:Swelling of the feet can be due to several causes, problems with the heart, kidneys, liver, low protein levels in blood, obstruction of the veins of the lower limbs, blockage of lymphatic channels, etc. You need to see a good surgeon and have investigations to rule out one after another of these causes.
