Hello I am seeking advice on behalf of my mother who sufferes a awful venus leg ulcer..
She has had many different treatments
She has used many different dressings
It is massive it's at the bottom of her leg above her ankle..
She has had countless infections, some of which has got into her blood making her extremely poorly she is constantly dosed up on lots of different medication including sometimes overdosing the morphine just to ease her pain.
She is over weight which of course does not help the healing process but with her being disabled she can't physically work out she is dieting to help lose some weight.
The doctor says there is nothing more to do to help her and amputation Is the last option.. surley there is something else they can do
She is a diabetic and suffers many different health problems so putting her under the knife is a massive risk..
For 7 entire years she has suffered and it is killing me watch her in so much pain every single minute of every single day
We need to know there is light at the end of the tunnel
Success stories.. support from other sufferers. . Or just someone else that she can relate to she really is giving up and it's breaking me in 2 knowing that I can't physically take this away from her and make her feel better
Any advise would be greatly appreciated
