Exactly.

It can happen in many conditions, such as:

1. The capillary bed is ruptured from trauma and blood fills the interstitial space. A bruise and swelling (edema) result from this.

2. Liver or Renal (kidney) failure causes a decreased production of plasma proteins or excessive loss of plasma proteins, respectively. Intravascular fluid then moves to the interstitial space causing edema (swelling).

3. Heart failure causing blood to pool in the lower extremities and the increased hydrostatic pressure pushes fluid out of circulation = edema of the legs.

4. Inflammation (from hypersensitivity reaction = allergies) causes histamine to be released from Mast cells and then capillaries become "porous" and leak fluid = swelling.

5. Infection causing inflammatory cascade and also inherent damage to the endothelium (inside lining of blood vessels) from bacterial toxins causes leakage of proteins into the interstitium.

6. Thrombosis (blockage of blood vessel by a blood clot) backs up blood flow and then swelling distal to the blockage (same mechanism at heart failure).

These are just a few mechanisms that can produce edema. The first one was what happened to my hand.

I loled HARD, thank you.

As soon as I saw that sign and that he was a lefty I knew exactly what was going to happen.
