at home trying to recover and heal my foot. Had surgery due to an injury that happening in December. stepped on a rusty wire on right heel, caused infection, had to have surgery.
Doctor told my family body in septic shock, foot drained of pus. Stayed in hospital for 12 days with constant IV antibiotics being administered. skin color slowly returning to norm.
Nurse visits my home to give antibiotics via IV every morning.
My Doctor, a podiatrist, changed my bandage and says to see him once a week to change dressings. It used to be that the nurse changes my dressings every morning. Is this okay to do? Since I was just diagnosed with diabetes just 8 months ago, I am not sure if this is a good thing to do, wait a week before my dressing is changed? Need advice, shouldn't the dressings be changed every day? Please help me, need an answer ASAP. Don't want to wait too long to address this.
