Help with Edema (swollen ankle/calf)

See if you can get her to just keep her feet in motion even if it's not walking.  I'd suspect that just being figity for a while might show some results.  The more sedentary, the more of a problem it's likely to be.

surfivor:
We try to go for walks a couple times a week, maybe 3/4 of a mile or so each time. In the winter it's a lot less often. I mentioned to her about going swimming ..

I think just flexing her foot up and down while sitting would be better than nothing.  You want that calf muscle to act like a pump.
