I have type 2 diabetes controlled by metformin and statins. I have a spinal problem which has got very painful, and I arranged to have an operation (privately) which was arranged
for 07/01/2014. As it is too painful to lie flat, I sleep in an armchair, and as a result my legs have swollen with water. I have been advised to raise my legs, however as the worse of the ulcers are on the back of my legs, this makes the problem worse. and they has broken out in water blisters, bleeding ulcers, e t c and the surgeon has refused to operate, until they heal, They are being dressed twice a week by a district nurse, and I am on a third course of antibiotics. Does any one have any suggestions please, as I'm desperate to have this operation,. Thank you all.
