It is nice to hear from you again sunset...how are you?

Thanks for the booklet...I too cannot read Turkish so also wondered if there was an English translation version. It is good to see the medical profession making booklets to help their patients

Hi Sunset

As mentioned above nice to hear from you and hoping an English version will be out soon. The picture on page 6 looks like the ulcers I had on my legs which no-one knew what it was - pity I couldn't have shown them the book then!
