Can hardly stand or walk. Legs and feet extremely swollen. Doctor says I have lymphedema also. Extreme night leg spasms. I take three different high blood pressure meds. I sit and think about all the things I want to do but as soon as I try to stand I get so depressed because I know I can't stand for just a few seconds without a cane or walker.
