I have poor circulation in both legs, have had chronic phlebitis. Have varicose veins, 1 in each leg has broken loose in the past and required surgical treatment.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
