I've had it for at least 6 months-there is no progress in skin discoloration and no temperature
change in the affected areas. I have no fever with it but some difficulty walking. The swelling
is much worse in my left foot but does not increase with pressure, as walking. My urine output
is normal(or more) . I have a long history of HPB(on medications) but not diabetes. I did NOT
notice any insect bites in the area.
