Hi there I've recently been diagnosed with PAD and im looking for other people with PAD around my age.. Im only 18 and have already had an emergency surgery to save my leg when a blood clot got lodged in the narrowed femoral artery. Almost a year on im about to undergo a bypass of my femoral artery.. Anyone out there in a similar situation? Please!
Bless your heart! Sometimes this sort of thing can show up in young people too. My son is 18 y/o and he has been taking medications for high blood pressure since he was 17 and he is not overweight at all. They dont know why he has high blood pressure-they checked everything-but he does. Although most people think of PAD as an "old persons disease" it can happen at any age. In a way, you are blessed the clot got caught in the femoral artery. If it has passed on to your heart, lung or brain, you might not be here to tell us about it!
