My 14 yr old has been going to a Orthopedic Surgen for 2+ yrs, we have as much PT. This yr they finally did an MRI that showed no tears or such. She has swelling of her arm, turns purples, get cool, throbs & piercing pains. It seems it has more to do with nerves from thpain she is having, but the swelling, coolness & purple color point a different way. We go to a Neuloogist next week & Orthopedic dr has called for a Venogram CT Scan.
The lsat time this happened was a couple weeks ago after batting practice, she was fine until a few minutes after she stopped, her pain was soo bad we went to the ER even though I knew they wouldn't be able to do much as the way of test.
What is a Venogram CT, I read a bit but still not sure. What about the MRI & CT Scan in the same year, is that to much dye & scans? I don't want to cause side effects, but we need to solve this.
Is there anything we are not looking at??
