Actually, she does have it. Elephantiasis is caused by a blocked lymphatic system, otherwise known as lymphedema. When it’s Stage 3, with pitting edema, it’s aka elephatiasis. Google the two words together, you’ll see.I know she doesn't have it, but her legs always make me think of elephantiasis. There are definitely some poor souls out there with legs that strongly resemble hers, at least in pants.
Even skinny people can get lymphedema although it’s rare. In them, it’s often a side effect of cancer treatment where lymph nodes have to be removed. In Africa and other countries there is a worm/parasite that enters the lymphatic system and blocks it causing lymphedema, and I bet you were thinking of some National Geographic picture of normal people with one huge leg, like I was. Same disease, different cause.
Same outcome. Lymphedema can only be managed, not cured, and one way to manage is lose the weight.
