Thread: Getting Small Wound Healed

  1. #11
    Please do not rush sitting. Even though the wound may look healed, it is still a fragile area - for many reasons.

    I encourage you to still go to the Wound Care Specialist and also to get to a seating clinic for pressure mapping.

The wound is just about closed now but since it?s an area where I?ve had 2 flap surgeries, one in 1998, the other in about 2003 and 2 wound closing surgeries , The last one in 2010, I should definitely get the area checked out. I need to also get pressure mapping since all my wound problems have been on my right hip side.
    Staying off the area for the last two days made all the difference. We?ve also been using Promogran with the aqua cell and have had wound cleaning spray to use.

    Yes I am being careful with staying off the area and I am trying to get an appointment for wound care. Pressure mapping may have to be done at a Wheelchair vendor
