Hi everyone, just thought I'd let you know have managed to get the result of biopsy I had two weeks ago, it shows "no active inflammation". Not sure if this suggests there is evidence of previous inflammation, guess I will have to wait till I see Rheumy on the 20th November. I was clinging on to the small chance it may find something, the symptoms continue, and the right temple burns worse since biopsy, I thought it may ease off after they cut away a section. Have had a problem with a small section of the scar healing, a small section split open on Sunday leaving a 2 inch piece of suture hanging :-?. Also since having the biopsy have managed to develop a stress fracture of the ankle (distal fibula), so I am wearing a walking boot. This allows me to take it off for driving, so I can still go to work, although getting a few funny looks from my patients. Occupational Health have given approval to me working, just find at end of 12.5 hr shift ankle is pretty swollen. Will let you know what outcome with Rheumy visit is in 2 weeks, I'm hoping she will let me increase steroids to see if all these GCA type symptoms settle. Take care everyone. Best wishes Runrig
