Hello dr sorry coukdnt write the internet was down at hotel. Well the vacation was good suprisingky nonattacks. I had to face some of my fears. The only worry i still have is blood clot. today drove for 11 houts, only 3 stops. Did have my stockins on
Why again are you worried when you did the very same thing a few days ago and things were fine?
Customer: replied 3 years 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 .

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 3 years ago.

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

I mean rock still with no moving of the toes or legs or anything.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

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

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 3 years 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

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 3 years 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

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 3 years 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

Absolutely nothing wrong with the leg. So have you actually flown before?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

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

So are you asking how to get over those fears?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


It really will take therapy--are you any closer to getting some of that?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

ok, but what would u recomend

Sorry--I had to be away. You mean what kind of therapy?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

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

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

So you don't trust your doctor's judgement?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

All moles are raised and they aren't soft
Customer: replied 3 years 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

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 3 years 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 .

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
