Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Why again are you worried when you did the very same thing a few days ago and things were fine?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i just worry that i will miss something and it will strike me unecspectantly. all my vacation ikept examining my legs.nowmy legshurt because i sat for so long .

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
The stops were fine and just what you should have done and the stockings helped. Again, there is absolutely no reason for you to have developed a clot int the leg since you really have no risk factors and like I told you before it takes being completely still for maybe over 12 hours even to make a clot a slight risk.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

when u say completely still what u mean. when we were driving i would move my toes,and stretching

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
I mean rock still with no moving of the toes or legs or anything.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

butjust in case e and my husband what should we be looking for. for nowwe finebut just in case

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
You really already know this but pain in the entire leg with obvious swelling from the foot to the thigh. And the leg would be tight--very hard.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

ok will do that . ok let me change the subject as i told u i did had to face somofmy gears , but i so e couldnt obercome . like elevators, airplane

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK--but let's get to that in the morning--about 9 AM eastern time--I have to get to bed now so get back to me then
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

hello i am being a busy bee today , ok i know its propbably nothing but when i walk my leg hutts a litttle but no redness, no tenderness.and again getting back to our conversation my husband wants to fly and he is frustareted when i cant use elevators. and just two years ago i didnuse them

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
So you have a fear I guess of the elevator falling or a plane crashing? Have you ever been in and elevator or a plane?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

well the elevator i am afraid when jts closing being in a small space and if it doesnt open pretty much same thing about airplane and yes afraid of crasning. and also u think nothing wrong about the leg

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Absolutely nothing wrong with the leg. So have you actually flown before?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

last time i flew was 15 years ago last time i used the elevator was two years ago

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
So are you asking how to get over those fears?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
It really will take therapy--are you any closer to getting some of that?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

ok, but what would u recomend

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Sorry--I had to be away. You mean what kind of therapy?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

no i mean besides theraly. and also why i am also afraid of this.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Sorry--I was off. One therapy would be for you to force yourself to take the elevator and to fly until the fear went away
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

hello doc if its not one thing its the other , wel remember my mole on theback i did show it to the doctor in july she said it looks and feels fine , i keep touching it to me it looks now a little bigger and now i am thinking it is cancer

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
So you don't trust your doctor's judgement?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i guess not, it was not my ususal doctor mine was out that day. she did measure she didlooked through he loop. but i keep touching it, it doesnt feel soft its also raised. i am losing itnow

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
All moles are raised and they aren't soft
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

it is brown not dark brown .i dont want to run to the doctors for every worry but also dont want to miss anything

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
But you did go to the doctor about this and were told it was fine. Is it that you need another doctor to tell you that?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

maybe u . even though i know u didnt see it itshard for u . its not round but the edges r ok. it is raised , brown.i just dont want to die from skin cancer. and when the doctor asked me if anybody in my familt had skin cancer i told her my late grandma had some cancerous thing on her nose they took it off twiceshe said it doesntconsidered to beanything dangerousor melanoma .

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK--the redness is just from your fiddling with it so much. From your description this is just a benign, simple mole and not a melanoma. If you're really bothered by it even after I say We need to close the page now
