    Where is your pressure ulcer? What stage is it? What size it is? Are you laying or sitting on the area at all? What have you been doing to treat it? We need more information.

        Have you been off of it for all that time? Four years and I would get a bone scan ... I wonder if there's infection in the bone (Osteomyelitis). If there is, the soft tissues won't heal until that is dealt with.

        Have you ever tried electrical stimulation of the area? That won't work either though until the bone is clean.

        Can your doctor order a bone scan?
        Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

            The sore is clean. The problem now is it's hard to cover the skin.

                  Is it possible for your to post or e-mail us a digital photo? This would help to determine how severe it is, and what treatment would be indicated. I would agree that if you have had it this long, and it is to the bone that you may have osteomyelitis, but it is not possible to make much recommendations without more information.

                        6 shooter, no ointment or potion in the world will work if it's down to the bone - in fact it may do more damage to those soft damaged tissues

                            Hi all, long time no posting here. How's life?
                            After my sacrum was healed. Sadly now side of my thighs have 3 bedsore, 1 years plus already. I'm using lyofoam now but it really takes time to completely healed. Any suggestion?
                            Thank you.

                              Where on your thighs? Is this actually trochanter or along the sides of the thighs (an very unusual place for pressure ulcers unless from a too small wheelchair). How deep are they (what stage)? Do you have photos? Are you seeing a wound care specialist?
