The good news is, it's not pyoderms or cancer or UC of the skin. The bad news is, there's nothing they can do to really treat it if it is just a recurring ulcer. SOOOO, I am stuck with leaky wafers. I leaked yesterday, went home from work to change, and it' leaking agian today already. BOOOOOO.
I think I'm leaking today because I put a piece of tegaderm over the wound and the wound dressing. That leaked fast last time, but I thought I'd try it again in combo with the "system". No go.
When I change today I'm going to try a non convex wafer with the eakin seal. I've been using convex. This bites. I hate leaks.
