Thanks for the details

The reason for your swollen legs is likely the heart failure

I would also do a kidney function test and serum protein levels as kidney disease or hypo-proteinemia can be responsible for this as well

You need to see the doctor for these investigations

You should use a water pill or diuretic to get a relief from swelling

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. I will be glad to help you always.
