In 1978, perforated appendicitis,had an emergency operation, in India & had blood transfusion whereby contacted Hepatitis 'C'. In 1985 came to India for schooling & started getting large ulcers on lower limb. Initially digonised as vasculitis. Tried every kind of medicine but unsuccessful.The ulcers goes deep until the bone is visible. Severe itching, pain & bleeding. No medicine helps. In 1986, had typhoid and disprin was given, had severe blood vomit, vital signs practically nil, underwent emergency operation,in Doha Qatar; where the doctors damaged & so removed spleen. These ulcers are there throughout the year. In 1993 contacted tuberculos and was treated for it. In 2000 suddenly had blood stools & blood vomitting; 50 bottles of blood was given. An artery burst in the stomach, so an emergency operation again. During post operative investigation
they did a CAT SCAN and said that it was not vasculitis. These ulcers have now started under feet & reaching upto knee. The legs have become black. There is severe itching & bleeding & pain. Nothing helps.
The symptoms you're describing are very serious and need evaluation not only by an orthopedic surgeon for your exposed bone, but also a vascular surgeon for the severe skin changes of your legs, possibly representing decreased blood flow.
