First get your BP checked, your liver function and kidney function done. If they are normal then there is no need to worry about oedema. It's normal to have oedema during pregnancy provided all the tests are fine
Normally Delivered a 4.5kg baby on 8th September. Having sever bilateral edema on legs. Blood transfusion was done on 9th September bcoz of 6.5gm Hb. Now having distended abdomen (may b because of enlarged uterus) and burning micturition and persistent bilateral edema. Sometimes Hematuria also occurs. What to do now.
Dr. Suman Rao
Gynaecologist
Get your urine routine and culture sensitivity done to rule out infection. Get an ultrasound done to rule out any collection in the abdominal cavity. The oedema could've because of anemia as your HB was 6.5 or it could be because of redistribution of fluid after delivery. Wait for some time ( a week) and see if it's getting better otherwise consult a physician.
