Would suggest In this heat you may be a little dehydrated get yourself an empty 2litre bottle and fill it with water each morning and make sure you drink it each day, 👍👍👍

Something I've been using for cramps and restless legs is magnesium oil. You massage it into your calf and thigh muscles. I've found it helps a lot, and quite often magnesium deficiency is what causes cramp. Get it from a health food shop or online.

Drink tonic water mate, (if you can )it contains quinine which helps prevent cramps. 

I suffered badly with them at one time. 

Magnesium tablets can help as well.

I used to get em in my hands, fingers, feet, legs, toes and arms, only thing that ever helped is these, been on em years, if I forget to take em it all starts again.

Are you sure it's cramp? With your recent medical history I'd suggest a bell to your GP wouldn't hurt, that's what they're there for.

By all accounts one of the biggest problems for the elderly is dehydration that can lead to all sorts of other problems .

As said drink plenty water and stay hydrated 👍

Bit of Dioralyte won't hurt if you've lost salts through dehydration

No use drinking water if your tamping a million brews a week . 

Swap your tea and coffees for water

Magnesium is meant to be good for cramps,  can't beat H20 mind. 😉
