Glad they found this out!! Are they diagnosing you with PAD?
Hopefully it can be helped with lifestyle changes...(Hopefully you don't smoke)....and then meds/diet to help lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, lower blood sugar, and circulation (excercise)
Usually these are the first lines of treatment before any type of surgery.
Keep us posted on the next steps...
