Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you are having bad lymphedema and swelling in your legs
you need to elevate up your legs above your heart level in a recliner as often as you can to let gravity help pull fluid out of your legs.
your doctor needs to help you arrange for visiting nursing home visits to help you clean and dress your wounds on your legs.
you need to see a social worker at your doctors office
you may need to be transferred into a nursing home if you are bed ridden and can't care for yourself at home.
you can call up an ambulance 911 to bring you to the hosptial for evaluation
from the hospital, the doctors there can assess you and treat you with antibiotics
and social workers at the hospital can help arrange for you to get into a nursing home where they can care for your wounds and legs.
let me know if you have questions.
