Praying for a miracle right now, but know this, you do not need that foot! You will be fine without it. Take it from the proud owner of a prosthetic and my many friends that have prosthetics as well. We are happy, healthy and live amazing lives when the infection is cut out completely. You can thank me later.

Can you get a second opinion? Remember they get paid a lot for surgery!

 

Marian Bell

Frankly, I wouldn't know who to see, Elisabeth. This doc is one of the best in wound care, if not the best. The Infectious Disease doc will render another opinion on Thursday. Will just have to see what he says.Believe me, I know surgery and hospitals are expensive, especially with no insurance or job!

Here's sending you a heartfelt prayer that this stubborn infection will gradually begin to mend. I admire your courage, and send kind thoughts for your healing!

I'm keeping you in my thoughts, Marian. Your belief (and ours) that you can overcome this is strong, strong medicine. He may be one of the best doctors, but honestly, doctors really don't know everything and they often don't give the fighting human spirit enough credit.

Marion, I am in agreement with you and others on this post for your foot to be healed. I have been in your economic situation and know it can turn around almost overnight receiving monies that last as long as I live along with other blessings.

Today's update...the Infectious Disease doctor was much happier about how the wound is healing than the wound care doctor! He says he tussles with the other doctor all the time about what he says to patients; he is very pessimistic, although a very good doctor. Anyway, found out today that I was on the IV antibiotics for the bone infection I had, not for the wound itself. Didn't know that. He says that at this time there is a 90% chance that the bone is fully healed. And, I have been on this antibiotic for 6-8 weeks and shouldn't be on it any longer. Didn't think I needed antibiotics anymore at all. So, he removed the PICC line and told me I don't need to see him again, unless things get worse again. He definitely did not think there was any need at this time to have my foot cut off! (Total disagreement with the wound care doc!) He can tell I'm taking care of it and am more interested in pursuing total healing, which I am, of course. Actually, kind of disappointed to be released from his care, but if there isn't any antibiotic needed any longer, no point in going to him.

I thought there was more improvement today from yesterday. Looked like more pink tissue underneath the exposed tendon. He did confirm that the white fibrous tissue I now see after the wound care doc debrided it again Tuesday is tendon.But, the wound looks smaller still even just from yesterday. Not as much dark tissue present, which could just be dried blood from the debriding Tuesday, as it bled quite a bit when doing that. Don't know for sure about that, though. Anyway, personally, I still think we are making strides in the right direction, that is, towards full recovery!

Please keep up the prayers! I know they are helping! God has His healing hands on me! I know that! And, I am offering prayers of thanksgiving for everyone praying for me! Thank you all so much! Your positive comments help lift my spirits so very much!

Yes, yes, yes!!! I'm very happy to read all this good news, Marian. That is just fantastic. I know what you mean about being kind of disappointed to be released from the one doctor's care...maybe you feel like he's kind of a security blanket, but to be told that you don't need to see him anymore is excellent news!

May you continue making progress in your healing and show that other doctor what's what! :-)

It has been my experience, and I have a TON of it, that the best doctors are only the best doctors because they've told everyone else they are. I strongly suggest you find another since it is apparent other experts in the field disagree with the "best doctor's" diagnosis.

I have had the "best" doctors recommend unnecessary surgery completely unrelated to my MPS, boast to me how their procedure would succeed where all others failed (it didn't and I ended up in emergency surgery because it didn't), wait six months after seeing me to tell me I might have cancer, tell me the only place I could have a procedure done was the clinic they invested in (it wasn't, though it was twice as far from me in the next state), and that I don't have anything remotely related to exactly what I have. This is nowhere near a complete list.

Hubby deals with similar stuff - so I understand somewhat what you're going through. That's great news! Just stay on top of it!

Be prepared for a nasty scar, but if that's the worst, that's no so bad!

Excellent news.

There is a lot to be said for " gut instinct " when it comes to your body - or your Doctor.
We may not have a medical education - but you tend to have a "knowing" about your body, listen to it.

I know I've said this before, but I have to say it again...Thank you all so very much for your positive thoughts and prayers for full healing! I really do appreciate it from all of you! It's all so very uplifting and helps keep me going toward that healing! You all give me strength to keep up the effort, instead of caving in to the whims of one doctor. Actually am not sure I will return to him at the time I'm supposed to go in a couple of weeks. May try another wound care facility; don't know what I'll do at this point, other than continue doing the wound care I am doing trying to get this thing completely well!

Thank you all again for your continued prayers! You are all in mine!!!!!!
