What's the best way to deal with liver related edema in my legs, ankles, and feet? Currently taking 40mg furosemide and 50-100mg of Spironolactone. Weight gain related to edema. I'm on a sodium restricted diet, and drink about 2qts. of water daily. At one time I was at 4th Stage Liver Failure, I have regular banding of esophageal varices, procedures every six months. Taking low dose of Nadolol to keep portal pressure down. Can you make any suggestions as to how I can help myself?

Thanks Nikki. I've used reflexology in my feet before, and that worked well, but I can no longer afford it.

Does anyone have any advice on dealing with Zenker's diverticulum? I understand it is rare and presents certain dangers. Would like to share info with someone. Thanks.

Thanks, Nikki. FL wouldn't work, as I'm on in the southwest. I'll keep at it though.

Thank you. Used to have a therapist for this, but her arthritis in her hands, keep her from doing this now, and she moved out of the area. It worked to some extent, but wasn't as bad then (3 yrs. ago). Thanks for the suggestion.

I have Zenker's diverticulum and it is causing problems. Can anyone else with the same situation tell me what their experience is with it, and if they had a procedure to correct it?

My sister had/edema, she has not discussed all she has done but she goes to a therapist now 3 times a week and they work on her legs in pushing the fluid out and on her stomach and she said they massage and push, wish I could tell you more. She had it for years, was given water pills, they did surgery that didn’t help her, then she went to a podiatrist, he told her what she had and he sent her to someone. She showed me a picture of her legs, what a difference! She lives in Florida but I don’t know who her doc is.
