for the past 6 years i have had a weird thing on my leg. it goes from my foot to my knee. it is a red color and occasionally i have fluid draining out of it. i also have blood scabs and it has a burning pain. my 2nd toe on my foot is paralyzed also. it is gross looking and i can]'t wear long pants due to pain from my nerve. i have lots of drs giving a reason what they think it is. no one with the same diagnosis. one thinks the scar is from a blood clot that i had a long time ago and the clot has irritated the vein in the leg. one thinks it is a circulation issue. i got it after my 4th back surgery. that area is also swollen and the calf is hard but not real big. sometimes my foot swells also if is let the leg dangle. it is really gross looking also. does anyone have an idea what is gong on or what this is? apparently drs are not worried. i had one wrap an oxide wrap around it. i was allergic to the oxide and had to take it off. i am now taking a form of water pill to reduce swelling. i got this after back surgery. never had it after other back surgeries at all. it is not congestive heart failure either or a blood clot. i can tell you what it is not but not what it is
HELP HELP HELP WHAT IS THIS THING. I WISH I HAD A PICTURE OF IT.
