I am new here. I just got diagnosised with this condition February 2007. Pyroderma Gangrenosum they call it. Terrible condition. I am still in the healing process and this is now July 21/07. I was clawed by a cat at work in the breast which caused an infection first. They operated which then made the skin fall off. This has been very painful. The side effects from all the medication takes a toll. From the prednisone to the cyclosporine, both cause terrible swelling. I am in search of any information anyone can give me to how long the recovery time may be.
