Seven years ago my husband was having trouble walking. He had severe cramping in the muscles of his calves and coldness and numbness in his feet. He kept going to the doctor (Kaiser) and was given all kinds of medications. This went on for about a year (they just kept changing meds). Finally I told him why don't you go to a foot doctor sinces you're having problems with your feet. So he did and that doctor wrote a note to Kaiser telling them they needed to check him for PAD. He went to a vasular surgeon who checked him and ordered an angiogram. He was completely blocked in one leg and slightly blocked in the other and needed to have the main artery which runs from the heart into the legs replaced. After that he did two more surgeries another graft in his leg and then he got a blood clot in the stent. Be insistant with your doctors. Remember if you have an HMO who they are working for.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
