Welcome to the Ledderhose disease (plantar fibroma) blog.

My name is Gary and I am the author of this blog. I am a ledderhose patient from the UK. I am an ex-scientist and hold a degree in Molecular Genetics and I try and put this experience to good use exploring this condition.

I have pages here about the treatment options, patient experiences including my own, insights from medical professionals, explanations of the science and whatever else I think may be useful for fellow patients. Through the blog I have made contacts with many patients, professionals and charities and now work as a trustee for the British Dupuytren's Society.

Hopefully you can find the pages you want using the navigation menu above or use the search box to look for specific information.

Hope you enjoy reading the blog and please contact me at ledderhosedisease@gmail.com or leave a message on here to get in touch. All information will be kept private unless you tell me otherwise.

Thank you for visiting.

Climbing Snowdon

Achieved something else I never thought I would today as my wife and I went up and down Snowdon. 

It was not an easy climb and my feet were suffering on the descent as you just have so much pressure going through your feet and I was not wearing the best shoes for going up 1000m climb. Now I am back in the holiday house with some comfortable shoes on I don't feel too bad and certainly my foot which used to be painful doesn't feel bad at all.

The Running Vests are here

The running vests have arrived and they are very nice. Katie and I have tried them on and taken them for a run this evening, very comfortable and they have the charity name in nice big letters. Here are a few pictures.
