About two weeks ago, I discovered a crack on my wife’s right heel. She saw a doctor about it and he gave it a few days to heal but unfortunately, it turned into a minor (hopefully) foot ulcer. Two days ago, he partially debrided it and today he finished debriding it. My wife will see him again two days from now (on Wednesday) and he will change her dressing again. He cut and put a DuoDerm Extra Thin CGF dressing directly on the wound and then wrapped the ankle expertly. After that, the nurse puts some strips of tape on the dressing to hold it in place. He also told me that I will be changing her dressing starting Saturday. Does anyone know where I can get clear instructions on the Internet about changing an ankle dressing? Her ulcer is centered on her heel line, between the bottom of her foot and where the Achilles’ tendon ends. Finally, any other tips or advice on doing this properly, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for reading my message and I look forward to reading your responses.
