That is a bit of a tragic story. As far as the bite and related localized damage, no long term effects. However he was so happy about the cure for his
skin condition he quit using the drugs he was on for 30 years. He was a bit overweight and went on a diet, started exercising, etc. The happiest he
had been his entire life. About 2 months after the miraculous cure, he bent over to pick up a piece of paper and something went snap in his back.
Apparently the drugs he had been on had effected his bones in a negative way. He is now in a wheelchair. His skin looks fine though. His back injury
had nothing to do with the spider bite other than his quiting the drugs they had him on cold turkey. Murphy's law i suppose.
