the diabetic ulcer on my left heel was checked in Toronto by a plastic surgeon yesterday. dead skin was cut away by a chiropodist. some changes in the dressing treatment prescribed. Oh, and I get to wear an air cast to help immobilize the heel from flexing too much. Can’t say I love the air cast. The plan is for me to heal on my own, no flap or skin graft. Dead skin was cut without a local anaesthetic and I did not feel a thing which was good.
