    Depending on the type of pad you mean surgical or stoma sanitary pad then unsure of what type you meant. I have / use surgical mesorb dressing pads.

    I think she means Peripheral Arterial Disease; blocking of the arteries that supply blood to the legs: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/periph...l-disease-pad/

    Oh I see, so probably in need of a tens machine or foot massage pad. Provided they do not have a pacemaker. My mum uses them regularly with the conductive gel it helps the circulation.

    If it gets realy bad then they will use Femoral Angioplasty to open them up again and maybe even stenting, the same as they do with blocked cardiac arteries.

    My mum had a bypass and a valve replaced but still about the same as when it was done. Hence the foot massager and tens machine.

    I used to work in the NHS until my own illness got worse 12 years I liked helping people especially disabled people special needs etc.

    Yes unfortunately. PAD was discovered after I had a heart attack in 2014. Initially I had coronary stents the same year followed by bilateral femoral angioplasty the following year to rectify blood supply issues to both legs.
