I have been diagnosed with early MDS and I'm wondering if anyone else has had petechiae on your ankle, foot, instep, and heel that started out red and turned brown after that. My foot does swell up after being on it for a while and the instep begins to hurt and swell also. There is also a black spot on my instep which my PCP said is a superficial blood clot. I saw my hematologist on Thursday but forgot to ask him about it and of course, the office is closed today. Does anyone have any ides if this will remain this way or if it will eventually dissipate?
