So this is what's going on in my world...
The weekend before last I noticed tiny red spots around my ankles...i wrote it off as heat rash from running around sweating at work but within a couple days it was worse so last Wed I went to my doctor...she ran blood work & sent me to a dermatologist on Friday who took yet more blood, urine , chest xray and cut a chunk of meat out to biopsy. (under the bandage which u can see is still bleeding thru after 3 days as this pic was taken last night) so I am dealing w wound care as well and i cringe every time i remove the bandage as it is sticking to all the sensitive tissue. Ouch!
The tests which have come back are all good....still waiting to hear on a couple and the biopsy wont be back till next wk so they cant offer any treatment til they know what that says. My doc says he thinks it is a form of vascularitis but they need to know what is causing it to treat it.
Meanwhile I am to keep my legs elevated as much as possible.
I will keep you posted as results come in.
GiGi is fine...she just wanted to be included
