Hello again and congratulations on your improvement.
I have not personally had any experience with the wound vac, but I know someone who did. Her foot/leg were virtualy destroyed in a wreck and the infection was eating away at her bones. It was a horrible wound and simply would not heal....until they started the wound vac system. I was amazed that she did finally heal and is able to walk normally again. That's been a few years ago (before I left work) and things have probably changed since then, but I do know that she was facing amputation at the least and is able to walk now.
Either way you decide, I wanted to share the story with you to let you know the frustration is not in vain.
All my best.
