Patient : I have edema in my right and left legs and stomach since June and I have been on Lasik ever since. When the swelling goes down, I go off of the lasik and within a few days, I am swollen again. I typically gain 15 lbs. I had an ultrasound done and on my right leg it shows that the valves aren't closing. Since I have no insurance or income, I can't get help. I am on a no salt diet, but I do take 900mg of lithium daily. Does it hurt for me to stay on the lasik?
