One persistent and annoying condition with my reconstructed leg is the occasional skin ulcer, which will sometimes result from a nick or breakdown in my grafted skin. Over the years, I’ve become an amateur wound care specialist, employing what I learned in the hospital and from reliable resources on the web.
Right now, I have one the size of a quarter on my Achillies tendon and, if this one is like the others I’ve had before, it will take about 6 months to completely close up. So, I will probably use pressure with zinc impregnated gauze, as well as open air now and again. If you have grafted skin as a result of necrotizing fasciitis, a burn or other reconstructive surgery, here are a few helpful links to help you heal.
