Back in September, I posed the question, “Are you a wound care expert?” At that time, I thought the hole on my Achilles tendon would take about 6 months to heal. In November, I was able to give an update, as the skin began to grow together. The wound has finally closed and I am back to walking around in flip-flops, even though it’s in the 30s or 40s outdoors. My wound care procedure has been tried and proven a number of times over the years: prayer, cleaning with warm soap and water alone, zinc impregnated gauze, and pressure — lots of pressure. Thank you all for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers. If you are suffering from a skin ulcer or similar condition, check out my earlier posts of links to wound care sites on the web.
Dr. John Crew has an amazing record. I wish this therapy was around in ’98.
The new treatment for NF was pioneered by Dr. John Crew, director of the Advanced Wound Care Center at Seton Medical Center in Daly City, CA. Dr. Crew has now overseen the use of NeutroPhase in the care of more than two dozen NF patients, such as Lori Madsen, Jared Hamilton and Michael Meillon. None of the patients he treated has died. None has lost a limb or any body part.
