    Question please.

    Hi All,
    I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience having a skin graft done using Apligraf? As you recall, David had surgery done in July of 2012 due to a fractured ankle. He had screws put in and the ankle appears to have healed well. The problem is one of the surgical wounds is still not healed and still rather large. There is also one quarter sized one open. The home care nurse is not happy that it is still open and neither is the doctor. I have eliminated pressure as much as possible. He was on the wound vac earlier in the recovery and it just seems like this thing should be healed. The wound care doc wants to do the Apligraf on him and we are more than willing to give it a try. I just want my son healed up. Has anyone had this done and if so, how long did it take to heal and how many treatments, etc. Thanks for your help.
    DavesMom, Diane

    I have not had any experience with this, so will leave it to someone who has. In the meantime, I will do some research on it.
