Dr. P. Jyoti :

have you had tests for lymphedema?

Customer: No
Dr. P. Jyoti :

you need to have tests to check for lymphatic blockage

Dr. P. Jyoti :

otherwise a fracture so long ago should not lead to repeated cellulitis

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the fact that this develops after you put pressure on the leg is also significant

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the lymph from the intra-cellular area flows out through lymph channels which are like veins

Dr. P. Jyoti :

these can be blocked or impaired during any injury to the leg or any other part of the body

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this can lead to impairment of lymphatic flow

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this may be a possible cause of your repeated cellulitis

Customer: Only a m.r scan I had to see if the infection is coming from the bone. But when I had wet cupping done there was alot of dark black blood from my lower right leg compared to other parts of the body where I also had cupping from

Dr. P. Jyoti :


Lymphoscintigraphy

Duplex Ultrasound

Dr. P. Jyoti :
