2nd Week of dressings and wow what a difference

lovely nurse cut aw way my bondage and wow my legs have shrunk - amasing still a long way to go with foot and ankle so I am now on double wRAP -- sounds like a lunch roll haha-

I am a little bonkers guys no apology for that. My legs over the week became very co,mortable and even my sleeping improved and wow did I wee . All to the good so here I am encased with serious itch on one leg is this usual do I scratch or do I have to ignore?

We were talking about the next step and I have problem so can not put stockings on so I am hoping to get leg splints any one heard of these?

Leg splints? Could this be something like Farrow Wrap? If so, it's good stuff.

If you have a serious 'itch' ask the nurse to apply some Diprobase or E45 after she washes the leg, or use Epaderm to wash the leg.


Not sure but I should find out next week :)
