nov 2014 — wound on ankle appeared.

oct 2018 — finally healed up

Wound was a "venous stasis ulcer" caused by high blood pressure.  I didn't have high blood pressure until I started taking a prescription called "phentermine" for weight loss.

4 years, basically, because I couldn't get approval for WLS (weight loss surgery) until I'd been on a prescription drug for weight loss.
