Hello ! I came back from a flowup dermatologist appointment today. My GI & a dermatlogist are treating the Pyoderma Gangrenosa together, a new skin condition I have just been diagnosed with. Looks like things are doing ok, I will continue on the 60 pred and start Remicade as soon as they get prior auth. I was taken out of work in the begining of Nov, and looks like I will be out till at least the end of November.. so thats all for now... Cheers to the begining of healing up this leg of mine.
