heart- feet swelling and numb

I had a heart double bypass in 2003, my feet are swelling and numb,I take a lot of meds. glucophage,actos,metoprolol,zetia, atacand,tricor,lipitor toprol-xl,sinemet,zoloft,wellbutrin. I'am worried about p.a.d. I had a stress test a little over a year ago, Doc said everything looked good. Could sitting make my feet swell?
Iam the type that hears about something, right away I think I have it.
                       THANK YOU

just based on the limited history you revealed, you really should see your physician

The numbness, of course, could be due to your diabetes.  The swelling could be due to a high salt diet, cardiac issues, peripheral vascular disease (arterial or venous in nature), medication, or seemingly, nothing.  If your doc is concerned, a doppler exam, for instance, could be ordered.

Wish you the best.
