Hi!
If your wife has choking, coughing and ankle swelling due to fluid retention, she is probably having some right side heart pathology and maybe a left side heart pathology causing back pressure on lungs. It would be a heart attack, heart failure, myopathy or side effects of hypertension. She could also be having an advanced COPD. Your wife needs urgent medical attention. Please rush to an ER. Take care!
