Customer Question

Hi ~ I fell down a flight of steps, on my back, in November. Apparently, I had a hematoma on my lateral left leg. my father was dying at the time, I wasn't concerned about it. It developed into a wound, the eschar was the first thing I noticed. I am trying to understand what happened. I first had it looked at in February, got off v.a.c. therapy yesterday.
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I am trying to understand the intricacies of why a wound developed. I am not a diabetic. I don't want to bother anyone, I thought I might find my answer here. Please don't bother anyone. Thank you for listening.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
