I feel bad for your brother,I have the same exact problem,but I have been doing the same exact treatment plan except I've been doing the same BS for 2 1/2" years. I get up for two hours two days
a week,the rest of the time I sit up 2 hours(6:30-8:30) for breakfast,the Aide comes in does my morning care then I lay on my side until about 11:00. (11:00-1:00) I'm up for lunch, I have my high protien,high price also,drink.I go on my side from (1:00-4:00).I get up for supper from (4:00-6:00) then I'm on my
side until 6:30 am. It start all over again. I've been a C 5/6 quad. for 32 years and had several flap
surgeries to the same area & there's no skin left for any more surgery. I tried all the Aquacel AG, Acticoat, every wound care scam products.Wound Vac sucks,$6,000.00 a month for 6 weeks.You can make the pump for $200.00,talk about Medicare or Medicaid Fraud. That's $6,000.00 a month not counting the supplies. Thank God that I'm a Vet and the V/A pays (KCI). My wife was on the Wound Vac
for almost 3 weeks & (KCI) charged her insurance company over $5,000.00. She had poor results with it
also. If the product doesn't work they shouldn't get paid...I'm desperate also. I have four options:
I'm not going to spend my third year in bed for spring & summer. I don't care what the doctor's say.
Good luck, have your brother try out my suggestions, if they work out let me know.
