Vascular Problems In Legs And Feet
Hallo leg and foot pain after legbypass went to vascular dr. And said leg is nice and warm so bypass was succes, but still in pain help?
Reperfusion pain: After having a revascularization performed, patients sometimes may experience what is known as reperfusion pain. This occurs when tissue that has been lacking adequate blood supply is suddenly given the blood it needs to properly function. This may resolve over time. Close follow up with your vascular doctor is recommended. ...Read more
Unilateral lower leg swelling. Wear compression socks and elevate feet for saphenous reflux, leg remains same size. Might swelling not be vascular?
No: You have venous stasis. Any other swelling can be like abscess formation, muscle herniation. Fracture, and if you have the above trust me you will know it right away. My advice if you have good arterial flow get 30-40mmHg compression sock and use them. Cut salt from diet and elevate feet when at rest ...Read more
Hi I had an old hip injury iv been to surgn and now vascular spealist they dono wats wrong to be diagnosed nxt is pain clinlic. Symptoms swalln whole right side, feet, leg, arm and hand plus chronic pain all the time?
Unilateral Swelling: Studies show that unilateral swelling has a large differential diagnosis which includes lymphedema and obstruction of venous return. The lymphatic and venous drainage of the upper and lower extremities are separate so your MD may entertain a diagnosis of congenital lymphedema. Imaging will be paramount in determining the anatomical cause of any obstruction, and a full H&P including family history ...Read more
Help with pain post dvt leg knee to ankle, pain at night sleeping. Vascular surgeon said continue wear compress/socks (day). put feet up. What else? Thx
NSAID: An NSAID (like ibuprofen, naproxen, or high dose aspirin) will help the pain. If you're on an anticoagulant ("blood thinner"), this will increase the risk of bleeding but can still be used if you're not having bleeding problems. (and I would let your doc know what you're doing and why). ...Read more

One of the concerns:
Is a clot, a bakers cyst is another that comes to mind. A clot is serious if present and needs to be dealt with immediately. The question is did you already have he ultrasound or not? If you didn't go get it done...And do not wait a week. If you did and it was negative, I would call the doctors office anyway explain your ina lot of pain and ask to be seen earlier.
Perhaps ice would help.... ...Read more
I have symptoms of peripheral vasular disease, pain in right calf and foot goes numb whenever pain is there. Pls advise, as no neuro docs in our city?
Sciatic nerve irritation.: You are probably a little young to have vascular disease. Much more likely you have some lumbar disc disease with pinching. When you pinch the nerve you may get numbness, weakness, pain or loss of proprioception. That means your foot doesn't feel quite right when you put it down. Try some low back exercises. You can find lots of low back exercise if you Google. I think you'll also find those on YouTube. If you are overweight, it will also benefit you to lose weight. ...Read more
Vascular Consult: You would need a formal consult with a vascular specialist to answer this question. Seek out a board-certified vascular surgeon to evaluate your leg with an exam ; possibly an ultrasound or segmental pressure study. He would question you about your specific symptoms and base your workup based on your history and examination. Your options could then be discussed with you based on this. ...Read more

Broken fibula & tibia in 99. Leg length discrepancy of 1.5" but only tibia is short. Fibula bowing. Problems feet up. Pursue Taylor spatial frame?
Other options?: You're 30 and no longer growing, problem won't get worse. A 3/4" heel lift on your shorter leg may resolve most issues. If not, surgery to lengthen the short tibia with external device is possible but results may not be worth the effort to get there. You really need to discuss with orthopedics your current issues with shorter leg and if they will resolve with surgery. ...Read more

? Spinal cord: Given the history I would wonder whether a spinal cord problem can be causing the symptoms. If that is so usually there is some disturbance in bowel or bladder function. There may also be imbalance and weakness in the lower extremities. Please have a thorough neurologic exam to determine the need for imaging of your spine. Good luck and well wishes. ...Read more

My brother is 17 yrs old and only 50 kgs and 5 feet 8 inches tall. He is a vegan. He also has a problem of leg crossover while running.
Hip dysplasia: Slight hip deformities from birth and muscle imbalance are the first things I think of as causing the cross over. Experiment with shoe wedges based wider laterally. Remind your bro that Homo Sapiens is an omnivore and needs animal protein to produce many of the hormones hat keep him running. All veggies is a poor choice. He does not have the second stomach of ruminants to properly digest them. ...Read more
