I decided to go for a swim today with the purpose of trying to get some of the fluid from my legs by exercising in the water. I didn't think I would be able to do much as I am very swollen. Anyway I did 102 lengths and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was actually very easy to do.
I came home and rang the specialist nurse at the Nottingham Hospital to
