Jim....thanks for the update...I am sorry you are having to go through all of this but it really sounds like this Dr. is on top of everything and doing all the right things so that is the great news!
Are they also working on other things like diet, exercise, and medications to help keep the PAD from getting worse?
Your journey is a wake up call for many of us with chronic pain issues where surgeries and pain keeps us from living a normally active life where PAD can develop...
We are all here to support you through this!
