Pressure Sore Review

Posted Mar 16 2011 10:05pm
This morning we were back to the hospital to check on Violet's pressure sore and have it re-dressed.

She has been complaining of other areas underneath her cast being sore (heel and forefoot) but the surgeon said they have padded it so well, there really shouldn't be anything there causing another pressure sore...well all I can say is I hope he is right!

On checking her pressure sore, it looks about the same as Monday except the blackness has lessened and changed to different colours. Surgeon says its about 1mm deep so far. They applied more gel and re-dressed. They have asked if I can re-dress it every 2 days. I told them I don't think I can do it. So hoping Dave can do it Saturday and have organised for her GP to do it every 2nd day after that.

I have taken a photo of it but of course didn't want that to be the first thing anyone sees while checking Violet's blog, so instead for those of you who are curious to see and have a strong stomach (if there is any?) I have posted it to my photobucket account for viewing, here is the link .

I just have everything crossed that this thing doesn't get infected! She has already been feeling very unwell.

After another bad night last night, I am still thankful to the pharmaceutical companies for morphine and valium.
