Maybe your feet are just really fat after all the KFC crap you've been devouring.

alright thanks a lot... the only test that they did was weigh me and see my blood pressure. and the doctor told me since we don't know if its a bite or an infection i will give u medications that cover both. but i am not diagnosed with anything yet.
Yeah, from the meds you can tell, its looks like the doctor was covering all the bases...as it really could be either!

Unilateral pedal oedema with no obvious inflammation... need to exclude a DVT. Get a venous doppler ultrasound of your calf done.

So is this a troll, or are all you guys just not taking him seriously because of the username? I don't get it.
Whatever...that's one seriously swollen foot
No, he's stupid because his doctor told him to go back if it didn't get better. It's blatantly gotten worse so the obvious thing is to...what?

lol imagine turning up and saying;

"I think it's a unilateral pedal oedema with no obvious inflammation... need to exclude a DVT. I need to get a venous doppler ultrasound of my calf done"

Awesome

That'll show the Pakistani *******! :awesome:
Well the first bit is his condition at the mo, no need to say that. He can just say that he is worried that it might be deep vein thrombosis...and see what the doctor says

And the Pakistani bit was so unnecessary.

Any blood clotting disorders in you or your family?
Any past malignancy or surgery?
Are you obese or possibly pregnant?
Any prolonged immobility?

Is your calf warm? red? tender to touch? Can you make a dent in the swelling that stays when you remove you finger?
Lool he is male so I doubt that he is pregnant

I still think that if the OP is still concerned there is no harm in going back to the doctor to check. While the antibiotic might not kick in immediately, the prednisolone and cetirizine should produce a noticable result in a shorter space of time. The doctor is definitely covering all bases they can think of with the combination of medication that has been prescribed, so I see no reason for the OP not to go back to the doctors if the situation is worsening; if the doctor is unsure then there may be other causes that haven't been considered.

Slightly off topic, but in the pharmacy I work in, there is an incredibly obnoxious male customer who can't understand why we keep querying the fact that he claims 'maternity exemption' on his prescriptions. :rolleyes:

you have one sided swelling with no obvious inflammation, need to exclude deep vein thrombosis. And the ultrasound is a diagnostic test to confirm it.

When did this start before or after the prednisone?

Well I'm not sure as the NHS pays for treatment, but your doctor can also rule it out with a blood test, which I guess is inexpensive.

Are you taking ANY other medication, others than the ones you stated in this thread?

National Healthcare Service, we get free medical care...

SO it was before the prednisone, you need to go to a pharmacy and tell them this, as I don't think its a common side effect or go see your GP.

D dimer probably wouldn't be much use as it can go up in infection anyway, leaving you none the wiser.

If the patient has no risk factors, an aternative diagnosis is far more likley, and the problem resolves with current treatment then a doppler isn't really necessary - in my humble opinion!
