    Hello there,

    Based on description, it seems that she is having Ascites and B/L pedal edema, which may be due to a lot of diseases and disorders. As it is, these are just the signs and indicators of underlying disease or nutritional deficiency.

    a detailed description and copies of the reports would have been more helpful!
