This patient had been suffering with venous ulcers for two years. Initial consultation at The Wound Clinic until complete healing was 3 months and the ulcers remain healed to date.
This lady in her early 60’s presented to The Wound Clinic with a large area of inflamed circumferential ulceration, exquisitely painful, so much so that she could not bear to have any dressings administered. The ulcer was making her depressed and withdrawn and at her wits end. She was on huge amounts of morphine to help with pain. After careful and attentive treatment, 15 weeks later, the ulcer is virtually healed, the only pain relief is an occasional paracetamol and this delightful lady's quality of life has returned!
