@teetee7 it took 3 years for mine to heal. Takes a lot of physical therapy, ice & time to heal. Every time you take a breath your sternum joint moves to allow your chest to rise and fall, this constant movement along with the daily activities can prolong the healing time. I highly suggest discussing with your doctor the risk and benefits. Have you tried physical therapy or acupuncture?

@thrasher3062 Based on my experience the
“Diabetic foot Ulcer”, would be the diagnosis. I ask because their are many different root causes to ulcers and knowing the type of ulcer dictates the type of treatment.

Diabetic ulcers can be complicated by uncontrolled blood sugars. How’s your blood sugars been?
I encourage you to discuss a high protein diet with your new physician tomorrow.

Prayers for successful treatment!!

Hello @thrasher3062
Certainly ulcers are difficult to treat at times. Can you share a bit more information? Has your physician given you a diagnosis of the type of ulcer you have? Have you been seen by your local wound clinic? What treatments have you tried and what are you currently doing? Your diet plays a huge roll in wound healing, hows your protein intake?

Thanks
Dawn

Here’s a great 5 min high protein low carb snack that I hope you will enjoy! I love blueberries and so does my kids. This is simple enough that my 8 year old enjoys making it.

Hi @hazelnut I think you are referring to radiofrequency neurotomy? If so here is some information that may answer some of your questions. I am not familiar with the procedure but a 3 of my patients have had this procedure and no reported issues to date.

As you already know every procedure has pros and cons. What other treatments have you tried?

Hi @jadillow we emeet again!! As we discussed in multiple other topics, I highly recommend a second opinion and hope you will consider the experience and expertise of Mayo Clinic. It sounds like you are having complex issues that mimic many conditions and I completely understand urgency and fear in not knowing the diagnosis.
Here’s a link for more information.
