Maybe: I'm going to guess what you are trying to ask here, b/c your question is all over the place. Weight gain can lead to leg swelling, though one would expect both legs to swell. If you had cellulitis in a leg, it can lead to a long standing swelling problem. Consider use of medical compression hose, 20-30mm hg. Knee high should work.
