Pititng edema is normal in the feet of those with LBD. The feet swell. Then they return to normal. Then they swell. And back to normal.
What I didn’t realize for some time is that mom was complaining of a lot of foot pain. So finally we decided to go get some new shoes as her current ones were “mature.”
But instead of getting her normal size, I actually purchased some shoes that were too big. And I’m glad I did. It acomodates the intermittent swelling. There are a lot of practicalities on this journey.
