Patient : My wife age 65 has her right leg amputated below the knee. she has a ridge of hard raised skin 2 inches above her knee running up and slightly around her right hip,buttock. every so ofter she will have severe pain on that spot to the point she will scream and cry. Her pcm told her it was cellulitous and gave her antibotics but it didn't change a thing. she still has this and it is somewhat moving upward. She also has this starting in the bend of her left knee. What do you think this is?
