Is it the case that it won't heal Gwen? My elderly neighbour had problems with leg ulcers, even had to have a skin graft at one point, and if she knocked the place where the skin was damaged, she was in such pain and it put her back to square one. I know the nurses had to come and dress it all the time, and they used Manuka honey on it in the end.


I can imagine how frustrated you are, hope things get better soon

love and hugs

Hi our Diz
Penny had the same problem (different reason as you know)
Try elevating your legs as often as possible .. if it gets too bad to manage get on the phone to your Dr and insist he / she comes out to you
I hope this might help a bit
Loads of love
Kim
