I had surgeries to treat a wound that resulted from grafts to treat necrotizing fasciitis. My wound keeps tunneling over.

I have a good plastic/wound surgeon but even after 40 Hyperbaric Oxygen treatments he tells me that I will have to have another surgery after so many since my admission to the first hospital on October 14, 2014. He has just almost given up hope and he doesn't know what to do now. My first 4 consecutive hospital visits covered 5 months and since then I have daily care, treatments, hospitalizations and surgeries. I really don't want more surgeries! I need another option.

You need to refer back to your treating physician, especially since he or she is aware of your medical history, the procedure you had performed, etc.

A day ago I had an accident and was injured slightly. There was a tear through my sock and a wound underneath. According to medical terms it is a Laceration. I cleaned the area with antiseptic and washed it. Then I applied Hydroheal ( Hydrogel Wound Dressing with Colloidal Silver) and covered it with a sticky gauge, then normal gauge and then finally a crepe bandage. I did this because similar treatment was done before too when I had a similar wound in the hospital. Is covering okay?
