You just can. If you can't tell, them they won't be swollen. Sorry thats not much help. They will look puffier than normal, youll develop cankles, they'll ache constantly as well like you've done a 30 mile walk. They'll feel better if you elevate them. If they look ok and feel ok then they're not swollen x
If you push you finger into one spot and see how long the colour takes to come back. Mine are only a little bit swollen to look at but take forever to get the colour back. Thats how my doc checks them when I go into see her.
Oh you'll tell :/ on bad days if i put my bare foot on a tile floor my toes dont touch the floor :' they also hurt and feel tight my hands are a tiny bit swollen and feel tight. I Just gotta make it one more month! :)
