October 1, 2016 – MRA Angiography

Today I received in the mail and response from my insurance company about a test that my Vascular and Gastroenterologist doctor  want me to have.  When I had an endoscopy recently certain things popped up that Dr. Lee felt needed to be addressed.  He knew I already had issues with my smaller veins but my new Podiatrist did a doppler test on my right foot which showed only a faint pulse.  That of course is not good.

I never throw up yet this has been happening to me as well as being nauseated.   My right leg has been hurting a lot more as well.  Something is going on.  My vascular doctor put in for the MRA and they approved it.  So happy about that.  Maybe we can get to the bottom?

Our mother – and all her siblings suffered from Vascular disease.  Mom, had to have both legs amputated due to vascular disease. She passed away at the age of 66.    I have developed bad varicose veins which our mother had as well as venous insufficiency.

I am just so glad my doctors are communicating.  I have good doctors and feel blessed.
