I have been suffering with LV for 6 years. The open ulcer I have now on my foot is getting bigger and very painful. I am on Xarelto 15 mg and have been seeing wound care on a regular basis. Has IVIG helped close existing ulcers for any of you? Thanks, Zenk

Zenk – I’ve not tried either of those meds so have no experience with them. This week, my doc is trying to get approval to use a wound cover made of sheep placenta membrane. I’ll let everyone know whether it is effective after I’ve used it for a while.

Hi @zenk:
You’ve been taking Xarelto for awhile now. Is it proving to be effective in your case?
Thanks,
