Some people, especially the elderly, overlook nutrition, but this is very important to consider when healing the skin. People with chronic illnesses or ones who have GI problems sometimes fail to get the vitamins and nutrients they need, but this can affect wound healing. Vitamin A, vitamin E, and zinc are especially important to consider if you have a wound.

My advice? Perhaps try a vitamin and nutrient drink like Boost. I think the taste has improved over the years, and wounds will have a better opportunity to heal in a timely manner.

I had a c-section many years ago. The wound took a while to heal, but then I was left with a sizable scar. Unfortunately, back then, they cut the skin vertically and not horizontally. As a result, I am left with a relatively unattractive, vertical scar that begins below by navel and extends for a few inches.

Naturally, I wish the scar was not there, as it is not pleasant to see. Nonetheless, it still makes me sometimes smile, I guess because I realize it is there for a beautiful reason.

There is a new system that was developed in a contract with the Navy to transport Dolphins and sea lions in 1997 and now is being marketed to the long term health and hospital industry.
It incorporates a "Fluid Immersion Simulation" --that is a lowering of the gravitational forces that are pressing down on your daughter when she is in the bed. This system lowers the vertical and horizontal sheer pressures that cause pressure ulcers and other wounds. Imagine floating on top of water in a pool without having to stay afloat. The body is 3D not 2D and this system has helped one nursing home in particular by reducing their wound rate by 80% in only two months since they started.
Email me if you would like some more info. [email protected]
Hope this helps

My Daughter is 21 yrs old. She had a C-Section 8 months ago and has not healed yet. She has had 27 debreeding's a pinulectomy (forgive my spelling) . She went to a wound treatment facility yesterday and after another debreedment was told to clean twice a day with dry gauze and use antibotic powder and it will close....She was told this very same thing 7 month's ago... She is overweight (obese) but is not a diabetic. Please any help is needed.

Thank You
