Mrs. Kannammal-56yrs-DVT (vericose vein)

23/7

Hi doctor,

Few days ago I talked about my wife’s problem: a wound not healing.

You can have look at the pictures.

She had varicose veins. On the left leg they have become large. Also there was some itching. Because of this she scratched. Later the wound was not healing and has become big.

Since the varicose veins are large, the doctor suggested operation (laser for some and normal operation for the rest). He checked the wound and said it will heal and it is OK to perform the operation, the surgeon completed the operation. Operation related wounds have healed. But the old wound appeared to be healing, later again no significant progress. First she was on tablets for two weeks or so and the two days ago we started applying ointment. Looks there is slight improvement but it is not significant.

The varicose veins operation was done in Tirupur. Since we could not visit Tirupur frequently, the surgeon asked us to follow it up in Karur and suggested a surgeon. We think this slow healing would have no connection with the operation. Her sugar levels:  under control (100 – 150 mg/dcl most of the times). Blood pressure appears OK (110/78, 130/80 most of the times. But in the morning just before taking BP tablets the BP reads 145/85, 150/87 for a short time and few minutes (half an hour later), the pressure falls back to normal.

She had blood circulation problem in the feet, especially in the left one. This was causing frequent swelling in the left leg for a long time. Now the swelling has stopped but healing of the wound is the problem. Does it mean she still has blood circulation problem? Will this prevent the or slow down the healing process?

Wound Not Healing

My wife had varicose veins. The veins were getting fatter and causing itching also. She used to scratch to relieve from itching. This caused a small wound on the left leg just above the heel. Later the wound has become larger and deeper.

We were in Tirupur that time. We visited a nearby hospital. They dressed the wound and gave some medicines. For varicose veins, they said they will arrange a surgical operation on the left leg and all will be OK. (The varicose veins on the right leg were small and not noticeable. Hence operation not required for the right leg veins.)We followed it up for a week. The operation was arranged. Still the wound had not healed and there were no signs of any improvement in healing. The surgeon said the wound is not a problem and operation can be performed. They completed the operation. Varicose veins disappeared but the wound had shown no signs of healing. They gave several dressings for weeks and we followed all the medications. Later we came to Karur and continued treatment for the wound. But the repeated dressing and oral medicines did not help. It is about two months and still wound not healing. We suspected we are not taking the right treatment.

I was taking treatment for kidneys with VishlaagroTech. I checked with the doctor for wife’s wound problem. After some discussion he asked for photograph of the wound. He did not have any plans to visit Tamil Nadu or nearby states. Since direct visit was difficult for us, I send the photograph of the wound.

The VishlaAgroTech doctors looked at the wound and also checked with us the history of the varicose veins problem. Then they rightly diagnosed the main cause as DVT. I do not know why other doctors in Tirupur and Karur did not relate the wound to this blood circulation blockings caused by DVT. Moreover this again is the cause of the varicose veins. (Some doctors treat more number of patients in a short time. Too busy and ignore valuable clues about the disease.)

Following treatment suggested by VishlaagroTech:

  1. Take Isabgol powder, mix it with glucon B and water.  Drink it.
  2. After 10 minutes mix DVT powder in water and drink it.
  3. External treatment: Make a paste of the Diabetic powder and apply on the skin around the wound.
  4. After 4 days apply betaduyne cream on the skin near the wound.

1 and 2 to be taken three to four times a day.

3 applying paste two times: once in the morning and once in the evening. But cleaning of the dry paste on the skin was to be done only in the morning. In the evening apply paste over the dried paste/skin.

 

 

We followed the treatment. After a weak there was only a slight improvement. Doctor advised us to wait for at least to see significant improvement. Yes, after 10-12 days we find healing signs. Skin around the wound was covering bit by bit. But the depth of the wound at the centre remained same. After 20 days we observed the skin growth covered the wound about 30%. Slow but steady. Later after 45 days we find the wound had healed 95%. The depth of the wound had become smaller.

When we informed the doctor, he said wound had healed 95% but the DVT inside other parts of the body might not have been cured. It might be only 50%. Hence continue the Isabgol and DVT drinking for some months and report.

About the treatment:

  1. Good and right diagnosis
  2. Tested and Guaranteed medicines
  3. Good follow up
  4. Treatment status check and inquiring about improvement
  5. Sending medicines promptly
