Hi, I know there are a few of you here that also have Pyoderma Gangrenosa. I am taking Prednisone, started on 60mg, now on 30 mg since end of Nov when I was dx with PG. The ulcer on the front of my leg was about 3 by 3 inches, had alot of depth, lots of drainage, very painful, and making my foot & leg swell. Since taking the pred the ulder has become much smaller, no drainage, no swelling, all that is better. The thing is now that its doing better I can't believe how long it is takign to heal up. Not sure if you can answer it but how long till it goes away completely? My GI said if by the end of jan its not getting significantly better we will do a remicade tx. My dermatologist said in March we will talk about how to prevent a scare. March? By March then we would be tx this ulcer for 4 months... do they take this long to heal? that seems so long.. appreciate any feedback from you guys.. thanks
