I had a revision of the amputation back on December 1 of last year. about six weeks later, they took out the stitches and it looked great. I was all ready to move on to a prosthesis. then a week later it split open. The doctor went in, debrided the wound and I have been waiting for it to heal, which it has largely done. During the time, I did eight weeks of hyperbaric treatment where I went into a pressure tube and breathed pure oxygen while watching movies. They simulated 45 feet underwater and at that depth, the amount of oxygen I was getting was about 245% of what it would have been at sea level.

I had a setback at the beginning of the month due to an outbreak of cellulitis. I'm still recovering from that.

All in all, I am making progress but it is surely a painstakingly slow progress.

Thanks again for asking.
