Muscle necrosis needs urgent debridement and removal of dead muscle part. Otherwise it may got infected and muscle proteins if they go into blood it may lead to kidney damage. Muscle protein myoglobin is excreted through kidney and since you have transplant you need extra care for your kidney. Diabetes also increases risk for infection. Multi specialist care is needed for you and please do not waste any time for reaching tertiary level hospital.

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer about the same time I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had a mastectomy then started radiation treatment for the cervical cancer in August of 2016 for 5 weeks Monday through Friday. Concurrently I had 3 treatments of Cisplatin for both the breast and cervical cancer, then went through 6 rounds of carb, taxel and Herceptin one every 3 weeks. That is complete. Currently, I have Herceptin treatment one time every 3 weeks. I was recently told I had necrosis from the radiation to my cervical cancer. I am feeling ill. Am I ill from the Herceptin treatments or the necrosis. No treatment of the necrosis was suggested. Should I find a physician who treats necrosis and how is it treated?

Hi, I had a contraceptive injection that went wrong (they injected too low down and not deep enough) so the liquid never reached my muscle. Because of this I now have fat necrosis in my buttock which for the past year has been very painful. I also have occasional shooting nerve pain and my new doctors have perscribed me gabapentin tablets and I can go into 600mg a day. I was wanting to know if you can roughly tell me how long I m going to have this issue and if there is any other treatment other than taking strong tablets everyday to mask the problem. My old doctors said it will be gone within the year, it hasn t. My new doctors have said they just can t say how long as they really don t know. Am I looking at a life long injury? I ll be very grateful for your feedback as a year or pain is leaving me desperate for answers. Kind regards
