DVT No, Cellulitis Yes?
Finally. In DC, one day my lower leg swelled up horrendously, right where my dog had scratched me. The next day, kidney stone, so I thought the two were related. My urologist said on Wednesday the stones are gone, I said "What about this leg?" He said go to another doc for that, not kidney related, kidneys are fine (yay!).
Friday a.m., leg is horribly painful. Red, shiny, twice its size. I got scared went to the ER. Doc there thought the same as me, blood clot. But my dimer-d was inconclusive, doppler negative (yay!). He decided it's cellulitis. Gave me Levaquin, swelling is down some now but it's still painful and my anklebone looks deformed. (My son was pleased with the progress-"Look, Mom, we can almost see the outline of your ankle!" He's been calling it my kankle LOL.)
I have appointment with pc doc Monday. Should I be okay to fly by Friday? My other leg is kind of swollen, it hurts. Can you have cellulitis on 2 legs at once? Is there anything I should be doing? Do you think I finally have the right diagnosis?
Man, I never go to the doctor and I've been to PC guy twice, uro twice, ER twice, in exactly one month!
