My dad had a bout with cellulitis a few months back. He is diabetic. The redness went away pretty quick but it took the open wound months to heal, which it finally has. He had developed edema in the leg and a couple doses of Lasix helped and then it finally went down. He had wound care in place to change the dressings during all of this and then the last couple weeks he was bandaged from his ankle up to his knee. Now his leg looks great (the doctor agrees!) and he purchased diabetic knee socks to wear. I am being told by the wound specialist that he should have DAILY compression therapy. I'm not sure what this is exactly. I should know more this week. She says it will help keep the edema from happening again. Daily? Seems excessive. With my dad's schedule of other appointments and other caregivers coming in, I'm not sure how he would squeeze this in every single day. He is not going to want this nor do I. What do I do? Should I get his PCP involved? I'm sure she didn't prescribe this.
