I was first diagnosed with Crohn's when I was 21, and like everyone else went through years of surgery and steroid treatments and felt because it has been quiet for a number of years now that it has decided to leave me alone now that I am 70, no such luck!!! Had a bad case of cellulitis and after a lot of antibiotics, biopsy's and investigations "Pyoderma gangrenosum was queried. The ulcer looked horrific, like as if I had been shot and was just displaying an exit wound of major proportions. The worst thing I have come up against with this, because it is a rare complication, is getting the Doctors to agree. The condition was extremely painful and although it is beginning to show signs of healing. It has been an uphill struggle with only my local nurses helping with compression bandaging. Now 5 months since it developed and I feel I have about another 6 months to go before it heals. Has anyone else out there suffered from this? If I am honest I am worried it will come back again and they will still be deciding whether or not it is a PG!!!!.
