For the past four weeks or so I have been battling with a potential pressure sore area from constant wheelchair use. I cannot get any definitive answers from any professionals. The GP says it’s not her area of expertise, the district nurses say ‘let me know if it gets any worse’, whilst palming me off with various creams and sprays. I am waiting for a reclining wheelchair from our very inefficient wheelchair clinic.
I want to take preventative measures now, before the skin breaks down.
If anyone has any successful ideas of how to combat this please do let me know – I am at my wits end.
