  1. Like many PRP patients, the skin on the soles of my feet became thick, cracked and bled. It was to painful to walk. For a time I was bedridden. Swollen feet made wearing sneakers impossible. I was relegated to slippers and a way of moving that I called the C-3PO shuffle.My lack of mobility extended from mid-October 2012 to mid-January 2013.

    Whether it was the acitretin, daily application of Clobetasol and urea lotion, the passage of time or a combination of all three, my feet improved. The “Milestone of Healing” was the day I could once again wear my sneakers. That was January 2013.

    If remission is part of the PRP Journey, then my remission has been complicated by my feet. I no longer walk four miles a day. I suspect that the neuropathy associated with diabetes has been exacerbated by PRP.
