    Wound help

    I have a wound on my wrist that's .5 cm by .5 cm and I have been to multiple doctors and none can make it better. Have had the thing for 5 months. In the picture it looks like undermining has started maybe on the left side or is it just bruised?

    Have you been to a wound clinic? It is important for you to be seen by someone who knows what they are looking at and feeling when they do the exam. I would definitely head in that direction if you already haven't been there.

    Hi Jordan,
    Although your "badge of SCI honor" resembles mine last year what I did to treat it versus what you should do now for yours may indeed be quite different. Mine was on my trochanter (hip) as a stage 2 that quickly deteriorated to a stage 4 and required surgical debriedment before it became septic, risking bone infection. I ended up with a wound vac attached for nearly 9 months, followed by a flap surgery (transplant) with the affected skin surface area forever scarred, let alone weakened and susceptible to breakdown more easily than other unaffected areas.
    HOWEVER, yours is not a located in a pressure prone area and therefore may take a completely different trajectory. In fact it's baffling how you could even develop a decubiti here.
    Listen to SCI Nurse, get it checked.
