If you have been in wound care for any length of time, you have seen a patient like this. The local cancer is eradicated, and then we handle the aftermath. I tried to get a video of the day I could see her lung moving but it was a TINY little hole under the rib after an abscess formed. We talked about a massive plastic surgery, and then we decided to wait it out. She was still working and was being transferred to another state, so hyperbaric oxygen wasn’t an option. We got past the exposed pleura with antibiotics and moral support, and then I decided to try the OxyBand. What do you think?
