Spinal Cord/ Pain
My patient has gotten his first pressure ulser after 30 years of being a quad. Its on his bottom and is 9cm X 6cm 5 cm deep and starting to heal. But he has finally desided it is healing because he is staying in the bed more. (sandbed) But now sence hes staying off the wound/bottom he is in so much pain he just cries. He use to up everyday for about 12 hours or more. Now we are getting up every three days for about 2 hours. Is there anything I as a care giver can do or is there something I can tell the doctor to help get him relef? Thanks so very much.
