Be seen: I you have had quite a bit if swelling in your legs, I would probably be seen. It suggests for one reason or another you may be retaining fluid. It may or may not becrelated to your recent plasma donation, but because it could potentially have a cardiac cause you would be wise to be seen for an exam.
