My dad is 59 years old.Couple of weeks ago we could see some swelling in his legs and we visited Cardiologist

He was asked to take Blood test, Echo and ECG.

Following are the conclusions from ECHO Test

Ischemic Dilated Cardiomyopathy
Upper Normal sized LV
Dilated RA and RV
MR-Mild
TR Mild to moderate
Increased PA pressure
RWMA Present
Reduced Biventricular Function
LVEF : 25 %

I'm surprised his doctor has not spoken to him, you need to schedule an appointment to discuss this. Simply put, these numbers would indicate a form of dilated cardiomyopathy meaning the walls have been stretched and are now thin and not as efficient as they should be. Also, the EF% of 25 would suggest congestive heart failure which explains the swollen legs because his heart is not beating efficiently. You need to speak to his doctor about his course of treatment. PM me if you would like more detail.
