Thanks for all your replies,,,,Matt's last colonoscopy was about
2 months ago,,and believe me,,he is NOT in remission,,,You can see on the photos,,the inflamation in the descending colon and on down to the rest.
When you look up Pyoderma gangrenosum on Google,,,is specifically states that it people with Ulcerative Colitis and Crohns get it and the doctor told Matt that his is a relatively mild case compared to some cases he's seen...but to Matt, he isn't thrilled with forearms with ulcers and scars, and now he is getting sores on his legs too....THe doctor gave him Doxycycline Mono 100mg and a steroid cream,,,we just hope it helps stop them,,,I'm surprised to hear, but happy too,,that there aren't more folks with this on board here.
When Matt first got colitis,,,he had it in his entire colon,,,but when the other meds,,Asacol, Purenithol, and other meds didn't work,,,he tried Remicade about
5 years ago, and has been on it since,,and now he has less inflammation and it's mostly the last part..He still has times when out of the blue he has to rush to the bathroom with an urgentcy and diarrhea...just hits him,,,and has accidents in public places where a bathroom wasn't around....very embarrassing,,, He's afraid to go anywhere for a long stretch of time...always wants to be sure a bathroom is near... At this point, he has no job,,no insurance,,and lives with us. He is 46, smart,,very nice looking,,and if you'd see him, you'd never think he had a medical problem... but inside he is getting more depressed...
