I have random red splotches on both legs, from ankles to knees.  They vary in size from dime-sized to quarter-sized.  I am sure this has something to do with the edema and my liver.  I had this previously, and had mentioned it to the hepatologist, but never did get an answer.  Even though my tumors have died, the dead matter is still there blocking the flow of blood and continuing to cause edema.
 
Any thoughts on this?

Hi Connie, it does sound like a catch 22 here. If the dead matter is still blocking the blood flow and the edema still persist, the edema and lower blood flow, could cause problems healing from the hip surgery. I would certainly talk to the doctors about this. Mark also has the red splotches, it is from the edema and his INR stays elevated, which probaly contributes to the splotches also. Hope this helps.

Thanks, Teresa! It helps quite a bit. The edema seemed to have diminished, but for some reason it returned today, along with the red splotches. I will speak to my oncologist about this. I have been wearing TEDS since around 2 PM, but am ready to take them off. I'm going to lie down for a short nap.

Thanks again!

Connie
