I have haemochromatosis, which has caused severe liver

Customer Question

I have haemochromatosis, which has caused severe liver damage, ( I have all of the symptoms of being an alcoholic but not being one.) I have diabetes also, Insulin controlled, and have discoloration on both shins. Over the last couple of days a boil has appeared on the side of my left leg within the discoloration which appears to be growing and more painful. How do I go forward with this. My wife, a H grade nurse, is loathe to lance it as I have a greater risk of an ulcer forming and possibly losing my lower left leg.
