Thread: Where was your first pressure sore located?

  1. #51
    When hospitalized (1992) I had a pressure sore on my butt right at the top of my butt crack. This left a flap-like scar over the top of my butt crack. Also, I have a patch of hair missing from my head, which I assumed was from a pressure sore.

    Since I do not have a lot of memory about my hospitalization either because of the horror of it all or because of Rx that I was given, I can only guess where my first pressure sore was located. I think it was on my butt. At least this is the pressure sore that took the longest to heal as it was still being packed and dressed after I left the hospital. So, thanks for asking...

All I know is that when my leg is positioned a certain way, it will eventually feel like it is missing.


    I get that a lot and sometimes when i am laying in bed my legs feel like they are moving its like this phantom pain i guess. really freaky!!

    i dunno how to explain the feeling either but i'm c/6/7 and my left will feel like it's asleep for days sometimes. it gets this buzzing feeling, different than the usual neuro buzz plus it won't spazz up like usual. like it's just dead.
