I am 44 and I have spina bifida. Has anyone here ever had a stage 4 sore and did it ever heal up? I have had it since April 2010 while in hospital.
Long story short, I was in the hospital and 2 rehabs. from December 2010 until last month when I came home. The whole time I was on a Clinatron bed. It was healing but very slowly. I asked about having the bed at home and after investigating it, my case worker said I could but then about a week before I came home, she said that I would have to go home on another bed and after I have 5 nursing visits, I could get the Clinatron at home. So after 5 days I called to get the bed then they said I would have to be home for 30 days before I got the bed. That was Medicare rules. Anyways, long story short, my dr. has to write a letter to see if I could get the bed. In the meantime in the low air matress that I am on now my sore has gotten worse.

Anyways, sorry for the long story. I'm glad to be a new member here. Take care all.
