Customer Question
I fell this past...

I fell this past Sat night and skinned my left forearm. The skin was pushed back about a quarter inch. It's still bleeding. Shouldn't it be healing more by now? (I'm 77 yrs old and on chemo pills [iBrance]) Thanks!

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I'm allergic to most pain meds. I take Advair daily as well as Ranitidine 2x per day (total 300 mg)

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Breast cancer spread to my bones and is now in my liver. But the iBrance seems to be slowing it down. I also have GERD and IBS.

No, I don't have a camera and I don't have a smart phone.

Chemo pills decrease the healing and this is the most likely reason of persisting bleeding or oozing. Also there may be some mild grade infection which can contribute in delay in healing.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
