Default Hi!

Hi Joanne,


I'm glad you found the boards they are a great resource! I have a VM in my left elbow/forearm, I have had treatment (sclerotherapy) and I'm now seeing a doctor at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville Florida.

I cannot tell you how laser works for VMs as mine doesn't show up at all on the skin as it's deep and in the muscle, but I would recommend getting an opinon from one of the experts on the main page you can e-mail them and they get back to you pretty quick. Also in South Carolina is Dr.Hochman ( I think I spelled that right) from what I hear he is fantastic might be worth hearing what he has to say.

Hope that helps and welcome to the boards!

Kristie
