Just read that KS will cause swelling of the legs. EXACTLY WHAT PART? -upper or lower? Does a female who tested at 4 and a half months need to worry about swelling?
Response from Dr. Feinberg
For KS to cause leg swelling would mean that it is fairly advanced and has been there for a while. It isn't very plausible that this could develop so quickly. There are other more common causes of leg swelling. See your doctor for an evaluation.
