Mrs. Geller, based on the information I’ve gathered, there is a chance you have a blood clot in your leg. Often times, people will develop
these clots due to risk factors such as long travel and certain medications like birth control pills. However, we cannot be sure of this until
we get further testing. There’s also a chance that it’s a skin infection, muscle strain, or even a cyst. If the tests do show a clot, then we
will need to start a medication right away that will thin your blood and dissolve the clot. I know this is a lot of information and seems scary,
but we will do everything to take good care of you. Do you have any questions for me?
