Does anyone else have experience with bedsores? I just discovered that I have several that will need to be carefully monitored and I've just begun researching and attempting to figure out creative ideas to resolve the issue. I had always imagined bedsores were only open, painful ulcers. Turns out in the beginning it isn't painful because dead tissue doesn't hurt! According to what I'm reading, bedsores happen when a pressure point gets squished long enough that basically not enough blood reaches the area and the tissue slowly starts to die. If it isn't caught and reversed in time, tiny blood clots form cutting off circulation to the area and then necrosis sets in, along with infection and such. Lovely stuff. For me, the combination of sleeping on a hard surface, recent happenings that made me 99% bedridden for a bit, and being significantly underweight all seem to have contributed to this fine little mess of sores I've got cooking. I see one of my doctors on Monday so will get some professional medical feedback on them then. In the meantime I'm attempting to figure out different positioning to try to give these a chance to heal. I'm using comfrey ointment, as the herb speeds healing, and I'm thinking that getting back on regular heparin therapy should also be helpful to keep the blood getting to those areas. Any other ideas?
