    Sorry to hear you're not well, Mona - hope you had a Merry Christmas, and hope things look up for you in the new year. Take care of yourself!

    Mona, I sure hope you won't have to suffer with that for much longer.

    Hey Mona,
    Not trying to be too personal, but where is the sore and what degree do you think it is. Have you seen a wound care doctor or nurse about it? Hope you have caught it in the nick of time and will be up and about very soon.

    All the best,
    GJ

    Jim, I love your avatar!
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    This is what Obieone had to say about using Microcyn/Vetericyn on her husband's pressure sore:

    I am using it on Bill's pressure sore - he's had 2 rotation flaps on them but a few stitches came apart and I could still feel a little tunneling present when I stuck the cue-tip inside. I am not exaggerating this stuff is amazing. I ordered the spray gel and spray it right into the cavity I am dressing. I also massage it over the whole area to clean and toughen up the skin. I am stunned at how well this is working. I've been coming to CC for over 13 years and Bill and I could write a book about what we do and do not know about pressure sores but this has been without a doubt one of the best "medicines/treatments" we've worked with.
    It won't hurt you to try it Mona.

    I hope the sore isn't too serious Mona. Hope you had a Merry Christmas despite dealing with the sore.
