Talk show host Wendy Williams was spotted out and about in NYC on Monday, June 17. The photos show she is suffering from edema (swelling) in both legs. Wendy has Graves' disease, an endocrine disorder that causes hyperthyroidism, also known as an overactive thyroid. Graves' disease does not commonly cause marked edema in both legs. The cause of her edema is unknown.

Cardi B shared photos that show complications of her cosmetic surgery. One photo showed her severely swollen feet, a condition called dependent edema.

Another photo shows her swollen buttocks, that could impede the flow of blood.

The "Money" hitmaker was recently forced to cancel a string of concerts as doctors put her on bedrest to recover from liposuction and breast enhancement surgery, which she underwent after giving birth to her daughter Kulture.

Cardi has faced some criticism for the gig cancellations online, but over the weekend, she decided to reveal exactly why she had to cancel her concerts.

"Look how swollen my feet get every time I take flights," she captioned the photo, adding that plane travel also causes her midsection to swell. "my stomach gets even more puffy."

"My feet and stomach burn when I get puffed up," she added, explaining it was one of the reasons why doctors had advised her to rest.
 

What Is Dependent Edema?

Dependent edema is a medical term that describes swelling in the lower extremities that is affected by gravity pulling the blood to the lower legs.

Dependent edema is characterized by "pitting" or denting in the skin when the affected area is pressed with a finger. Wearing shoes or tight socks will leave indentations or marks in the swollen skin.

What Causes Dependent Edema?

Dependent edema is caused by various medical problems including congestive heart failure, poor circulation in the legs, cirrhosis of the liver, kidney disease, and botched plastic surgery that blocks the flow of blood back to the heart.
 

Click here to read more about pitting edema in the lower extremities.

When the swollen area is pressed, and it leaves a dent, the time or duration that it takes for the dent to go away is measured from 1+ to 4+.
 
Pitting Edema Measurement

1+   Barely detectable impression when finger is pressed into skin.

2+   Slight indentation. 15 seconds to rebound

3+   Deeper indentation. 30 seconds to rebound.

4+   > 30 seconds to rebound.
 

What Causes Pitting Edema?

Pitting edema is caused by various medical disorders, such as heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, malnutrition, and kidney failure. Eating salty food can cause swelling in the feet if the patient has heart disease or kidney failure.

There are a system of muscles, veins and tiny valves in your legs that work together to pump blood up through the legs and back to the heart. Your blood pressure is much lower in the veins, so these systems are crucial to getting the blood black to the heart.

If these systems in your legs aren't working properly, fluid will leak out of the veins and pool in the surrounding tissue in the legs and feet.
 

Signs and Symptoms

  • Swelling and pitting
  • pain in the affected area
  • difficulty walking
  • stiffness
  • stretched, shiny skin
  • decreased blood circulation
  • itchy and tender skin
  • varicose veins
  • skin discoloration or thickening (also called stasis dermatitis)
  • skin ulcers, sores
  •  

    What Is the Treatment for Pitting Edema?

    1. Elevate the affected area. Raise the legs above your heart to help the extra fluid drain back down toward your heart.

    2. Wear compression stockings. Compression stockings put pressure on your legs and ankles to prevent fluid from collecting in your tissue. The stockings come in a variety of sizes and styles. Your doctor or nurse will measure your legs to get the right fit.

    3. Eat a low-salt diet. Consuming too much salt can make you retain more water, which increases swelling.

    4. Move around! It is important to exercise and walk around to help the systems in your legs to get the blood back to your heart.
     

    Medications

    4+ pitting edema means the system of muscles, veins and valves in the legs are not functioning properly due to a serious medical condition usually related to the heart or kidneys.

    Your doctor will prescribe diuretics, aka water pills, to increase your urine output. There are several categories of diuretics, including potassium-sparing diuretics that increase urine output without causing loss of potassium from your body.

    Your doctor will perform a full workup including a full medical history, medical exam and blood tests and urinalysis. You may be asked if you have a history of drugs or alcohol abuse.

    The underlying medical causes aren't always curable, but there are methods and medications you can take to decrease the swelling and decrease your discomfort.

    This has been your Medical Minute.

      That Sudanese African girl she bullied -her AFRICAN ancestors ain't playing! That African girl probably got a woke Auntie that know all the ancient voodoo spells .
      When she bullied that African girl on national TV I thought the Witches would strike sooner. The Universe dont play about her daughters.

      Somebody put hard voodoo on this girl.
      If not the African girl's ancestors it's probably Nicki or Nicki mom.

    • WhoKnew

      I talk a lot of smack for entertainment purposes only but that is one nasty STD in heels looking like a freak show from the family circus.

      I was listening to a radio show comment a few weeks ago before the dumbest bish walking the earth posted the swollen ankle pics and one woman that called in had an excellent point. She said that people like CarMax are putting foreign shyt into their bodies and they have no clue as to what's really being injected. She then went on to say that sooner or later they become ill and suffer a health crisis and they are scratching their weaves trying to figure out what's making them sick and then they remember the foreign shyt they had injected into their bodies. By then it's too late.

      ...and why you got your nasty ass diseased looking feet on the bathroom counter...nasty cow...

      My spirit is telling me that men are about to go on a rampage and start preferring women wear their natural hair and don't have fake bodies. This surgery crap is getting out of hand. Embrace that flat ass and saggy tits!

    • Witch

      I lay these hands over her feet asking that she heals and also let this healing humble her and make her a more kinder person.
      Remove the spirit of prejudice and colorism from her heart along with the swells from her feet. ??????

      As you should ! Trust me, somebody will love it. Not every man who wants a woman with a botched up doctor-made body.

      Cant she die from a blood clot or something. She's really putting her life on the line. Her butt looks way better i must say

      This wont stop these chicken heads. They'll still risk their life for an exaggerated body. All of this so they can be labled as a bad bitch and get attention from a bunch of aint shit niggas.

    • MRiGOThim

      That body is botched :P

    • Yup, I said it

      These women doing all this just to get some "likes". Those same men that encourage them to do it turn around and wife up the women like Karreche that have no curves and are shaped like a prebubecent boy.

      Miss Sandra, many people have never heard of the Lymphatic system. Will you also offer more information on the flow of other bodily fluids?

      Cardi looks like a messed up science experiment. She'd do well by taking better care of herself. D3ath does not discriminate.

      Cardi, Compression stockings come in loads of colors now...navy grey, burgundy...

    • ClaireHuxtable

      I met my man at Whole Foods on a rainy night. I had my natural hair in some mini twists, no makeup and some glasses on. He told me I looked beautiful and my heart just melted. Here I am - I didn't even wanna look this man in his eyes because my face wasn't beat. And he appreciated what he saw. Had to snag him up. Lol

    • Alextra Ballard

      I hope it’s not to late.

    • Prettybrowneyes

      She's not. Still traveling popping up doing impromptu apparences. Smh. Remember she said she's addicted to money, hope it doesn't cost her life.

    • chan chan

      Cardi body look disgusting

    • ClaireHuxtable

      Your body really isn't big on having anything foreign placed inside of it. Also, even the best surgeon screws up from time to time. So with those 2 things already against you, why bother?
      Unless you're having something done for medical reasons.

    • ClaireHuxtable

      Think about alll that money she'll leave for Offnut to handle while she's recovering from a stroke.

    • ClaireHuxtable

      No, but she has a baby to think of. Why take totally unnecessary chances?

    • missmiami305

      Most cosmetic surgeons recommend lymphatic massage post-op. That shit hurts like hell though. But it helps the body flush out fluid and heal faster.

    • missmiami305

      Too bad she can’t afford to take any days off?????. Now she looks like every other chick walking these streets. All that ish she talked about Nicki and now she’s trying to physically morph into her. How TF you married and posting pics like this. Young hoes I tell ya ?. Sadly this will not keep her man from stepping out. Oh well! Now her legs don’t match her ass.

    • MsPam

      I may have this from my fractured foot. I have to elevate my leg and compression socks.

    • tia

      Because the doctors over here in the states won't perform her surgeries, Cardi running her ass to the Dominican and getting those bootleg ass procedures. Prior to the baby, her body was straight. She just needs to sit down somewhere and heal.

      So sweet!
      I’ve been wearing my hair semi natural (it’s long and wild so I have the use a little heat). Lipgloss, mascara and that’s all. I can’t believe how many men compliment and just out right flirt with me? I find it interesting because I was the type who wouldn’t go to store without Mac, bronzer and lipstick. Lol

    • Vonda K

      Looks like she had waist liposuction because it’s snatched.

    • Alextra Ballard

      I agree, her body looked nice b4 and after she had her baby.

    • Malai

      When she bullied her, it made me so sad! That girl seemed so sweet and wasn’t confrontational at all... and it’s like, how is Cardi gonna talk shit to HER when she was messing around with her man and knew they were in a relationship?! That whole situation was bogus!

    • lovelygamour

      she could be having surgery complications, could be she is a nervous performer so she cancels shows a lot, or she could be backing out of shows that she feels arent paying her enough.

      I was one of the people who agreed with the bruno mars cancelling. she didnt have enough songs, just had a baby, and her sets are mainly dancing. however, after the homecoming cancellation I noticed a pattern of cancelling with her. I think she is making the rookie mistaking of cancelling concerts that was booking during a cheaper rate streak. so, what i think she is doing-- her team books her based on demand- if something better comes along she cancels and prepares her nerves for the more money show.

      how does this end? well if she ever falls down no one will look out for her. she has to quit cancelling unless the promoters says, "we didnt sell enough". she cancels to often and then does another show two days later. a lot of performers did that, the same ones that are now begging for shows and insurance. Making it seem like the promoters dont like them. no the promoter remembers when he was small and you cancelled on him. now he wont let you work for free

    • MsPam

      Thank you mama! I love my rose family.

      That ww cell in her body .
      Cardi was probably under the possession of her white female ancestors that own black female slaves. You can tell she got off on whooping that dark AFRICAN girl .
      Remember she has lots of colonizer blood ( Just look at her mommy and daddy) and a nose like them too.
      That was a white woman beating that African girl while celebrating making her Black man into her bed buck.

    • EMILY POST

      First of all who knows what health problems Fix A Flat in the ass causes. Thats not natural at all.
      I wish her well and hope she gets better soon. All that to have a better body and to compete with Nicki . Hell she got to do all that only to be with the dude that is. Everyone should thank her for her honesty about cosmetic surgery and sharing with the public. Lots of people get blood clots and all sort of issues and they lie about the cause.

      Hello! I'm the same way ! I'm a makeup junkie to the extreme. Bae is so fine ! The night I met him in my head I was like damn, I wish I had on makeup and a wig. Lol we've been preconditioned for YEARS to believe that we aren't bad b's without weave and makeup. And it's just not true. We are. I'm on a no-wig journey and it'll be a year in November since I've worn one. I have long hair, but wigs are convenient. I can be a lazy natural sometimes. Hair is too thick, too long and natural hair is very high maintenance. If I can make it to November, I'm just going to give these wigs to my sister or sorors. These wigs are too high quality to just throw away. Lol

    • Logan Roberts

      So she must not plan on having any more kids? Just wasting money & putting her life at risk. Upset keeps proving he doesn't love this chick, because no decent man is going to support his woman going through this.

    • Kimberly King

      Bloop! And the men be obsessed with their wife and their "imperfect body." I feel like surgery should be considered for health reasons only. I got a nose job years ago. Luckily I had a great surgeon so my nose looks great, but the reasoning behind getting it done was so stupid now that I look back on it. I remember when me and bae first had sex, I wanted to keep my cami on b/c these DDD's got a lil sag to them. Chile he ripped that shit off and told me not to cover or hold them while I was on top ! Lmao REAL MEN do not care about things that we care about!

    • Brown & Proud

      The funny thing is, now that society has normalized fake butts on skinny legs- everyone that is natural has a "flat ass". When in reality the natural ones are beautiful because that's how God made them! I was watching some 90s music videos (wutang, foxy brown, lil Kim, mobb deep) and all the girls, including fox and kim, had what is referred to as flat ass. Yet back then they were all bangin. It's sad that all this fakery is accepted.

      I wish could tie you up in my shoes
      Make you feel unpretty too
      I was told I was beautiful
      But what does that mean to you
      Look into the mirror who's inside there
      The one with the long hair
      Same old me again today (yeah)
      My outsides look cool
      My insides are blue
      Every time I think I'm through
      It's because of you
      I've tried different ways
      But it's all the same
      At the end of the day
      I have myself to blame
      I'm just trippin'
      You can buy your hair if it won't grow
      You can fix your nose if he says so
      You can buy all the make up that M.A.C. can make
      But if you can't look inside you
      Find out who am I too
      Be in the position to make me feel so
      Damn unpretty
      (Yeah) I'll make you feel unpretty too
      Never insecure until I met you
      Now I'm bein' stupid
      I used to be so cute to me
      Just a little bit skinny
      Why do I look to all these things
      To keep you happy
      Maybe get rid of you and then I'll get back to me (hey)
      My outsides look cool
      My insides are blue
      Every time I think I'm through
      It's because of you
      I've tried different ways but it's all the same
      At the end of the day I have myself to blame
      Believe I'm just trippin' yeah
      You can buy your hair if it won't grow
      You can fix your nose if he says so
      You can buy all the make up that M.A.C. can make
      But if you can't look inside you
      Find out who am I too
      Be in the position to make me feel so
      Damn unpretty
      I'll make you feel unpretty too
      I'll make you feel unpretty
      You can buy your hair if it won't grow
      You can fix your nose if he says so
      You can buy all the make up that M.A.C. can make

    • Leigh Burton

      How can Cardi B put on shoes with those fat Fred Flintstone feet?

    • TheOwley

      Wendy really has it bad. I hope she's taking care of herself.

    • speakinmymind

      That part!

    • ValJ1975

      For the record THIS IS NOT NATURAL BEAUTY!

    • Cliffpetty

      Yup happened to me after my son was born. Difference we didnt elect for this mess. Cardi did...good luck with that

    • Yetunde

      They probably weren’t like that before she put the shoes on. The high heel and just having had surgery will have caused the swelling.

    • RealATLPeach36

      Thanks Sandy!

    • Itzgoingdown2

      Hey Sandra, All of these people complaining about Trump being racist are silent on Joe Biden's racism.

      Joe Biden’s years-old letters to racist senator revealed

      You’re welcome, hun.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Of course they are silent. It's called selective outrage.

    • Lisa jones

      I see ads for plastic Surgery all the time nope.

    • Pamela

      Cardi B azz looks like homemade ciabatta bread. All doughy and sh%t

    • CookieMobster

      I wonder if Wendy's edema is caused my prolonged Cocaine use???

    • Jayde da Blade

      They say she drank.
      Alcohol can do this..
      Cut back off that liquor.
      And fuck her boy toy missionary legs up every ? night..
      And they'll go down.?
      Yw.

    • Kimocha
    • Gloria

      Feel bad for Wendy but at the same time, this is her karma. So I don’t particularly feel much empathy for her.

    • exlurker

      Yeaaaaaaa.... thanks Sandra, like I said before, this is my favourite part of your blog... the Medical Minute. I definitely need to cut down on my salt intake. Need to find other healthier alternatives to salt.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Thank you!

    • Miss Thang

      There is no healthy alternative to salt. The potassium substitute is more dangerous for your heart. Just lower your salt intake. Your tastebuds will adjust. And drink more water which will help flush your kidneys.

    • Amilia A Lee

      I’m suffering with this now (7 months pregnant) No one tells you how freaking painful this is.

    • Leigh Burton

      Wendy Williams' ankles aren't even smaller than the rest of Wendy's legs!

    • kitttykatlady

      I learned this the hard way hi salt intake with hi BP, my legs n feet swollen to point I couldnt wear socks just clogs 2 sizes bigger. Came to my kidneys shut down I had kidney failure. Potassium was sky hi..a little longer I would have died.

    • kitttykatlady

      The low salt n ketchup are high in potassium so it defeats purpose as well

    • exlurker

      Thank you.

    • Tina

      Funny how everyone criticized Nicki for her fake butt, and now everybody and their mama wants to have the same body as her.

    • Tina

      I actually like Wendy, but those little girl charms on her purse look really stupid. Hello Kitty and pom pom charms all over the place are something a middle school kid would do. I'm pretty sure that Wendy thought that it would make her look more feminine or girly girly but she looks ridiculous carrying that around at her age.

    • Tina

      If Wendy's so called boyfriend actually cared about her, he would be taking her to see a Doctor, instead of heading to the ATM and shopping sprees.

    • Dun Dilly

      wow

    • What???

      I see why Kevin couldn’t get it up. God bless that man.

    • Kimberly King

      No woman is ever too old to rock girly things. I don't see the big deal with the charms on her purse. Lots of people (including myself) LOVE bright lights, bright colors, flowers, overly girly things, dainty designs, etc because they recovered from such a dark place and these things make them happy. I remember watching an episode or Rupaul's Drag Race and they asked a contestant why was he so overly girly and wore so much pink. He said he got raped as a college student and felt dirty. That was a dark place for him, so pretty things help brighten his day. I say all of this to say this: Wendy is clearly going through a lot. Yea the girly charms may not be your taste, but it probably brightens her day. Not everybody is basic and boring.

    • reddfoxxy16

      Agree...Well stated???

    • Hazel

      I honestly don't know how any man could be physically attracted to Wendy smh

    • Kimberly King

      Thank you !

    • ClaireHuxtable

      Thank U Gurl.
      The time to hone in on our body awareness is now. Not after we've been stricken with some type of life altering disease.
      "Dis"- ease is warning our bodies if we'll just take the time to become informed, don't panic, but be pro-active.

    • ClaireHuxtable

      Salt & sugar seem to get thrown into everything we eat. Cut back on junk where you can. Follow dr's advice.
      Have a healthy, happy baby!

    • ClaireHuxtable

      Compression stockings come in a bunch of colors these days. She may want to invest in some.

    • ClaireHuxtable

      I don't fly without my compression stockings/socks on.

    • ClaireHuxtable

      The first time I ever noticed it was on a flight back from a vacay.

    • ClaireHuxtable

      That's not all. There's no quick fix for her problem now.

    • PrettyNetty28

      Hope your taking care of it better now. ???

    • dontgetblocked

      I deal with edema due to high blood pressure and diabetes. It's painful and incredibly difficult to find shoes. I'm surprised that people are making fun of Wendy. Clearly, this is a serious health issue. We should pray for her not laugh.

    • Alextra Ballard

      Wendy needs tew put away the fishnet stocking and start on the compression socks.

    • Alextra Ballard

      ?That was ugly?

    • Alextra Ballard

      Just about everything contains sodium

    • Alextra Ballard

      Just about everything contains sodium

    • Alextra Ballard

      If she wears them it’s probably in the private

    • Alextra Ballard

      They look heavy...when she walks they probably jiggle from liquid

    • Daffanyrose

      Same way they attracted to you

    • Daffanyrose

      Exactly but you have some childish ash people who love to turn their nose down on others

    • tintin

      A tall darh handsome man came up to me and said i have honestly not seen a natural beautiful woman in a long time. You are very beautiful and remain as you are. And that was all he said and walked off. I felt so good. He wasnt tryna talk game or get my # just your me how beautiful i was. That was nice

    • Kimberly King

      It's kinda like Christmas. People always ask me why is pink and green lights everywhere and why do I "over" decorate for Christmas. I remember Christmas as dark times when I was younger. I never had a good Christmas. When I was a kid, I vowed to always decorate and enjoy the festivities when I got older. You NEVER know what people went through. It's rude to ask someone why do they do something to extreme... when it makes them happy.

    • Strappyheels

      That song has always been so powerful to me..

    • Lotus Supreme

      Are we could take the blinders off and see shit for what it really is these people are not human anymore and have been replaced with something else to further a agenda to destroy the African American people to keep them brainwashed and dumbed down

    • abby500

      I know a girl who has a WHOLE bag line that has sparkly charms..that’s a problem??

    • Kimberly King

      It's a problem for the basics, apparently. Sparkling things make me soooo happy. And flowers as well.

    • EasyBreezy

      I appreciate your Medical Minute posts, Auntie. TY.

    • DaughterOfaQueen

      Damn Wendy ?

    • Chipswife

      Y'all forgetting Wendy was once a heavy girl. I've seen people get the weight loss surgery and everything gets small except the canackles and lower calf's. usually that's a tell tell sign that the person severely overweight didn't loose it the natural way

    • onelove

      lol

    • Sassie

      If I were Wendy, I'd always wear long skirts or pants. PERIOD.

    • Sassie

      Damn, LOL

    • Parent

      Get well soon!
