Default Re:H or VM

Just returned home from the Mayo. Next week I will start a series of treatments up there. They are trying to shrink it. And it is a VM. Funny how all these years I have been told that it was a hemangioma and now I find out that it is a VM. Right now I am not at risk of losing my leg but if I don't do anything that is a possibility. They are doing what they called sclerosing of the VM. Ever heard of it? Doesn't sound fun but neither is the pain of having it. It will take several treatments and then even possibly a surgery. Time will tell.
