I Know it might be to late, but I have a neighbor that I am helping out right now who is parapalegic and he had a bed sore on his back side. I have him drinking "silver wain water and applying silver water gel to the sore, it healed in one week,,we are working on his leg wound too, he just stays to long in his chair and the water retention in his leg is preventing it from healing as quickly. We use calcium alginate with he gel on it, one 2x2 gauze pad, one no sticking 4x4 and paper tape then we use duo derm around to relieve the pressure on his back side while he's in his chair. Good Luck!!
: My name is Katarah. Recently, my family and I were in a natural disaster. One of the results was my mother losing the feeling in parts of her legs. This could be temporary as no spinal nerves were severed, "only" damaged. However she has recently developed a bed sore on her back end. It is releasing lots of fluids so the doctors want to keep it dry and aired out, which means she is to spend very little time up, doing what she can w/ the limitations already imposed. The doctor is saying it could take months to heal. Does anyone know of any remedies for bed sores, to ecxellerate their healing? Any information is appreciated.
