My grandma has copd and recently had basically a 2 week stay in the hospital for pnuemonia and sepsis and required a blood transfusion. First week they thought she was ok and sent her home she was home about 4 or 5 days and I realized things were not ok and we took her back and found out that it was all back just didn't need the transfusion this time. She is finally home but her legs and feet are so swollen and I don't know if it is because of the COPD or if it is all of the IV fluids over the 2 weeks had to go somewhere... they wouldn't really tell me. She is finding it hard to walk and does get really winded but she is already on oxygen and has been on oxygen for about 3 years now. Has anyone had this happen to them or heard of it happening?
