aseptic fingers

4 posts in this topic

HELP! I read this blog all the time to get helpful tips and knowledge about our disease. Here's my twist. I've been on line a bit can't find any info.

 

I have CREST with pulmonary fibrosis, PAH, and a pacemaker. In Dec. I was diagnosed with stage 1-2 Hodgkins Lymphoma. I had been on cellcept since the previous Aug.

 

I started chemo mid january. I saw my schlero doctor. yesterday. She said I have aseptic fingers, probably caused from the steroids you get right before the protocol. She's doubling my revatio. She said it's like a pre-gangreen.

 

This is scaring me. Any ideas, info?? Thanks.

Hi Colleen,

 

I'm sorry you have so much going on healthwise. Do you think she meant "septic fingers"? That would make more sense. Septic means infected, whereas aseptic means not infected.


Warm Hugs,

Sorry to hear about your fingers Colleen. I'm sorry I don't have any information for you but maybe one of the members here can help you.

Hi Colleen

 

Sorry, I don't have any information on that either but like Karen said, I'm sure someone will.

 

That's interested Shelley, I didn't realize that either.


Sending good wishes your way!
