Dr.Phil, the patient is a friend of mine and he said he would but he would have to figure out how to send the picture over the computer. he said maybe in a day or 2 he can figure it out. but I can tell you that its a open wound on the ball of his feet about 3 by 3 in size and the dr. said it would never heal because its on the bottom of the foot.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I will get back to you Dr. Phil when he figure out how to send a picture over the computer. I guess I'm just looking for a 3th opinion because he had 2 from Oncologists. they feel it would be easier to just take leg up to the knee. He's Foot doctor say the same as Oncologist but he hope that he can take the foot up to the heel only and do a skin grafe and hope that it heal he said its a 50% chance of working and healing. Thank You, ***** ***** to you soon
