Fluid seeping from legs - anyone seen this?
My mother (86) who has multiple health problems (kidney disease, some CHF, diabetes, high blood pressure) has had fluid seeping from her leg the last few weeks, mainly at night when she's asleep. She kept insisting the roof was leaking above her bed, or the mattress was wet and her weight was causing the sheets to get wet when she laid down. Over Christmas Dinner (yuck) we finally discovered her pants leg wet and she hadn't even worn them in the bedroom. So her roommate wrapped her leg overnight and this morning her leg had seeped through the wrapping. There aren't any obvious wounds but there are some small reddish spots. I called her dr. and they advised to take her to the ER, but she won't go. Anyone have any experience with something like this? TIA Carla
