PAD / Varicose veins with inflammation

Good morning,

trying to find the best code for this. I seem to struggle with this: Hospice pt has "Peripheral Arterial occlusive disease". Then on the list of things cormorbids the pt has "Varicose veins of the LE with inflammation". The patient does have weeping of BLE. I have come up with I83.11 Right LE and I83.12 Left LE. For the PAD i seem to just come up with I73.9 and i know there has got to be a better code to caputure all of this. I hope someone can help :/ trying to find the best code for this.
