Anyone have experience with Negative Pressure Wound Therapy?
Looks like I'm going to be using for an open post-operative wound.
Surgeon removed about 4 cm of my Right 5th metatarsal bone due to a malformation causing a chronic pressure ulcer.
So I've now got this 'gaping' open would on top of my foot just behind my little toe. Because of the missing bone, there is a lot of open space in there that needs to get closed up once the underlying infection is cleared up.
They are talking initially about 6-8 weeks of being connected to the vacuum pump system with dressing changes every 48 hours.
Was wondering if anyone here had any personal experience with this system.
