I agree with everyone on getting a second opinion. I originally was blaming family practice/pediatricians for not giving the right advice. Now as I have been through more my frustration/wish from these doctors is that if they don't know then just admit it and recommend someone that does.I am okay with them telling me they don't have the answers but that is the step missing with most doctors. I didn't realize where the problem was until I recently had surgery and went through it. Your doctor has read somewhere that most will resolve on their own so that is where he steered you. Unfortunately when dealing with vascular birthmarks/malformations there are lots of variables. I have come to the conclusion if it is highly unlikely/rare my daughter will probably experience it.
