WOW Kelly! You are the first one I 've heard of that also has the swelling in the legs WITH THE REDNESS! My docs have treated me for all kinds of skin infections, cellulitis, you name it!  But i keep trying to tell them, my legs are ALWAYS red!  Bizarre~! I wonder if the adhesions block something that makes the legs swell like that. Hang in there!  

Have a fabulous day!
