Pyoderma Gangrenosum And Rheumatoid Arthritis
About eight years ago I had a wound at the back of my lower left leg. I slipped and caused a friction type burn, over the fast few months it slowly broken down from a two inch wound to 9inch by 9inch within weeks.
It refuses to heal and with a weak immune system doesn’t quite help. Does anyone else have the same with Rheumatoid Arthritis, the professor who looks after my wound says it will heal, eight years on I don’t think it will and I’m only 50 years old, and contacted this at 42.
More awareness should be made available if you ever have any type of wound with any autoimmune problems. Sadly for me nothing was available to try and stop this before it become problematic. I just like to know that I am not alone and maybe someone on the forum as the same condition as me?
