Hi all,
Most of you that know me , know about my ongoing saga on my legs and being so painful to walk. Take your breath away painful no matter what I am doing, inside or outside. Not a minute goes by that it does not happen. :jawdrop: #o [(
Which of course we all need our legs ;)
So at 11am I have a appt with a Heart Dr. to check for PVD and PAD.
I will post when I get back.

I am posting here since this where I do most of my work =)) :B :B

Hopefully it is not this and it is my back.
But in a way if it is 1 of these 2 issues we can start meds and treatment.

Ya'all have a awesome morning and I shall return this afternoon and post away :D O:)

Hugs and love!!
>:D< :* >:D< :*

  • Hi all,
    First thanks for the well wishes and responses.
    I have not so great news at all.
    First I saw a general surgeon who treats legs issues. Personally I thought he was a heart dr. So excuse me for that.

    He did the blood pressure cuff test and doppler on my pulses in my legs.
    I hardly have any blood flow going through each leg worse on the left.
    Second they did a ultrasound of the aortic valve in the stomach.
    Its almost completly blocked in the left side. And what has happened is it has broke off (the calcification) and gone into my legs.
    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I have a emergency appt with a TOP NOTCH vascular surgeon on Tuesday the 28th.
    They will do a more extensive test of the belly.
    Most likely it will come down to 2 things.
    Stents in my legs
    Bypass surgery in my stomach X( X( ~X( ~X( :jawdrop: :jawdrop: :''( :''( :''( :''( :''( :''(

    This is a rare disorder Lerichies syndrome. He was shocked at the least to see a 41 yr old who used to be very active.
    I'm at a lose for words and that is not like me. :S [(
    I am going to stay strong and get through this. 8>
    Get the problem fixed whether they admit me Tuesday that day because of my age or the following week.
    Fix me UP so I can walk again like a NORMAL person.
    Mabye this is why I have not fused.

    I will write more later when I'm able. Im totally worn out from testing . The ultrasound was painful as it was about 45 min pushing on my stomach.

    I love you all with what I have and what I can give.
    Going to rest now and sink this all in..

    Terri >:D< :* O:) O:) O:) O:)
