I am 23 years of age. I have a congenital condition that the doctors cannot name. This condition only affects my right leg. Two years ago I had an angiogram done that showed severe disease in my arteries of my right leg. At that time I had my femoral artery. Now I had a CAT scan done, and another angiogram that showed progression of the disease and that i no longer have my femoral artery. I am scheduled for bypass surgery on June 15. My concern with bypass is that I had my femoral artery two years ago,and now i do not. If we do the bypass what happens when the other arteries start disappearing as well. I am seeing vascular surgeons, however they do what they know...surgery. How do I find out what is causing the disease, and my arteries to start literally withering away to nothing. I have two kids that I want to run and play with, and if the doctors are right I will lose my leg at the hip within 5 years. Can anyone help me get to the bottom of this??? Has anyone heard of such a condition.



Sincerely,
DESPERATE!!!!!
