Here is Another Picture of My Brown Recluse Spider Bite

This was toward the end when I could walk again. I got bitten on May 31, 2004 and this was taken on July 31 just to give you an idea of the amount of time involved. The black part (necrotized, mummified tissue) was surgically removed about a month later, the day that I was laid off from my government contract job. I still have the chunk, about the size of a potato chip.

 

Today there is a giant scar there and I still have little sensation in my ankle.
