Today Linda, one of the district nurses, took the bandage off my right foot for the last time - I am officially healed.
[ insert clip of cheering crowd here … ;^) ]
That’s right: the ulcer has gone and I no longer need to be bandaged up with a sheet of urgotul on my foot twice a week. I am sporting a rather fetching pair of surgical stockings, though … well, they would be fetching but for the fact that not only are they different sizes (my right leg is rather thinner than my left) but they are also different shades: “sand” on the left and “honey” on the right. Thankfully, they are quite comfortable (I barely know I’m wearing them) and the only problem is that they’re a bugger to get on and off!
I’m thinking of writing up my experience from start to finish at some point including photos of the wound as it progressed - don’t worry, though, I won’t just stick grotesque pictures all over the place: there will be warnings and you’ll only be able to see them if you specifically click on them.
