How long does it take for the edema to go away if you had toxemia while you were pregnant?

I gave birth over 2 months ago and I still have pitting edema in my legs. I'm getting a little concerned that it hasn't gone away. Did anyone else have it last so long?

  • It should not be lasting this long. It is usually gone at the longest by 6 weeks. Contact your doctor and make sure your drinking plenty of fluids.
