That’s not swelling

350lb 5 ft Patient comes into the the ER with the complaint of "my legs are swollen".

I talked with the patient for a long time and finally asked "how long have your legs been swollen?"

Patient responded with "they have always been swollen."

I am sorry but that is not swelling. Your legs are just fat.
