Should i be worried

Should i be worried

Hello everyone

I had a codecompression surgery for both knees and ankle in april. I was hopeing that things will be better with my legs but it is worse. I noticed since my surgery i have some painful lumps on my ankles. It is worse when i walk or stand. Normaly my ankles get swollen after a walk but the lumps are so painful when am getting into bed. What now worries me is the dark patch on my skin which is exactly above the lump. It looks finger prints. I have requested 4 a scan to know what d lumps are but it is taking to long to get the appointment. I have one lump on my face, my jaw bone and 2 below my chin. Not sure what to do again. I am tired of calling my clinic bcos the receptionist always sounds as if i am disturbing them. I have attached a picture of my legs . Will appreciate ur opinion. Thanks and God bless

  • No i have not sent it. I always call and report any change. Do u suggest i send a pic via post? I am going to london for a holiday and i have had to hire a wheelchair just to reduce d strain in my leg. I have suggested to send a similar pic to my gp but he said they dnt give out their email for that.
