I have a wound on my leg and it is slowly healing. My legs are swelling, I am on a water pill and potassium. Does anyone have any suggestions to help reduce the swelling in my legs?

Elevate your legs as much as possible.
What does your Dr think is causing the swelling?

Not really sure, I have tried elevating some but I am in a wheelchair and I try doing as much as I can. I am going for my second appointment with another wound dr where they have a hyperbaric chamber next week. I have pressure dressing on my leg. I'm just not sure what else to do. I have to have hip replacement as soon as my wound on my legs heals.
