My father in-law has a huge open sore on his leg that the doctors thought was caused by blood clots. They treated what they thought the issue was back in December. Now in March he still has swelling in his leg, a huge hole that they keep packing with gauze pads and now a new black spot on his ankle has shown up and started oozing from an infection. On top of the leg issue he lost his voice back in December and has only regained some of it back. I don t know if the two are from the same issue or if he has two things going on. The vein surgeon can t tell us why the infection won t go away and why the first vein surgery didn t work 2 years ago. Is there a bigger problem here? Cancer has been ruled out, or over looked I don t know.

Hi... I am wondering why I am getting pains in both of my legs. The pain will come and go and switch between both legs. Neither are swollen, nor red. Sometimes the pain will be in my ankle, sometimes in upper thigh, sometimes my knee, and sometimes multiple spots.

In auto accident one year ago. Initial main injury was low back pain, numbness in whole left leg (including foot). Most of numbness is gone but comes back when sitting more than 30 minutes (especially in moving vehicle). After numbness down, pain in top of left thigh, knee, shin, periodic severe pain in left foot. Only relieve is to lay on stomach with legs straight. Saw Chiropracter, Physical Therapy, Acqua Therapy, Internal Med Dr., Pain Clinic Dr. No one knows why I continue with problem or what caused original symptoms.
