Lipomas

Posted by Patti on 7/12/01 at hrmin (052973)

hello....was wondering if you could give me a little help. I have had 5 surgeries on my ankles for lipomas.. now I think I have two more. Is there anything I can do to prevent this again? Everyone says no...that's it's just in my chemistry. I recently went to a podiatrist for this again....and he did a MRI and then sent me for second opinion. The second Dr confirmed it was a lipoma. Now the first Dr is saying maybe my muscles are just swollen then he shot cortizone into them...it hasn't gotten any better.,in fact, it is worse and I;m not sure I trust the first doctor still. I really need some help here. I usually always trust my Dr., but now i am starting to wonder if he knows what he is doing... or is just afraid to do the suurgery! Thank you for your time

The MRI should be able to show if it is a lipoma or a swollen muscle. Dr. B.
