Well, you can guess what happened...I had to go see Orthopaedics. They were very surprised to hear Burns Unit would not still do it for her and just squeeze her.
On taking the dressing off from Monday, the Burns Unit didn't put a foam dressing on it to soak all the slough from her ulcer and it sat there the last 3 days festering away and caused more maceration and damage to her surrounding skin! Not happy!
So they decided to keep her back slab off and give her a night splint for her to wear day and night over the long weekend so I can access the ulcer for cleaning. Trouble is it's not sitting right and applying too much pressure to her ulcer still which defeats the purpose of using it. I am re-adjusting her foot constantly as her heel keeps lifting out of it and repeating this.
She was also casted for her new AFO today, even though they really didn't want to put anything over her ulcer. They covered it up well and cast anyway. She will have her new AFO in 3 weeks. Hopefully by then the ulcer will be healed alot more and be able to weight bare. She will be put back in cast on Wednesday.
You will never guess what design she chose...spiderman featuring red AFO with webs all over it...who says I need a son...she gives me the best of both worlds.
We go back on wednesday for them to assess and re-cast.
