Ortho consult: 69 year old gentleman with ecchymosis on bottom of foot, moderate pain standing or walking, unknown onset, location, and duration of pain. Also c/o pain in knee and possible venous issues of unknown type. You should visit an orthopaedic surgeon for a medical history and physical exam. The orthopaedic surgeon can perform imaging of your husband's lower extremity and evaluate any problems. Good luck
