    Yes but it would hit the back lower calf.
    The neck pillows seemed to work.

    There's a green icky inside the hole. Good bad?

    Usually means psuedomonas .. is there a smell with it too or no? Infected in any case. How often are the dressings being changed?
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Twice a day. No smell. Going to go and see him today if I can get an appt. Even if I don't get one I'm going!

    Thanks again with this is it hits the calf wound.
    The 1.00 neck pillow (shaped like a u ) is working quite well in bed. Keeps ankle heel off bed and doesn't touch calf.
    Green stuff is quite minimum this a.m.

    Without seeing the wound or a photo, I can't tell, but could the greenish tissue be slough? Pseudomonas would be a greenish drainage, not the tissue itself.
    Some slough looks green instead of the usual yellow.

    I put a photo up on another thread. Thanks KLD. I'll try and post a new one.
