I'm sorry to hear that you had problems. I was told to have a Doppler test every year, without fail. This, of course, did not happen this year. However in previous years the nurse, during the test, has discovered other health issues, for which I am grateful.

I don’t have regular doppler tests. G P does not have a cuff big enough to go round a swollen leg.

What’s the Doppler test for , please ?

It’s to see how the blood is travelling through your veins and shows if any blockages
