I am EXTREMELY CONCERNED about the minimal circulation in my mother's feet, a condition which has been going on for quite some time. Of course, I have taken her to a doctor who has been regularly monitoring the situation, and who has done an angioplasty to open up the arteries in one leg. The other is not amenable to angioplasty, and he has now recommended the use of a device called the ArtAssist, which should help to improve the circulation over time. However, she suffers from considerable pain at night, when her foot is not on the ground and receiving adequate perfusion of the tissues. I am terrified that she will lose her leg, or at least her toes, and AT ALL COST, I don't want that to happen. I need to know that I am doing everything I can for her, and I'd like to ask if anyone has had similar experiences and if so, what solutions you have found. Has anyone used the ArtAssist device, or something similar? Is there something else I should try instead, or in addition? She found some degree of relief when taking Motrin, which the physician recommended for inflammation, but of course, one cannot that this anti-inflammatory agent permanently. She occasionally takes hydrocodone if the pain gets too severe. I would do ANYTHING to help my mom, and I hope that someone can provide advice and guidance!
