I’m writing you to receive a consultation regarding my father.
He was discharged from the Abano Terme polyclinic on 25/11/2017 with the following diagnosis: “interdigital lesion of grade 3 b according to the TUV with underlying osteomyelitis in the left foot second finger proximal phalanx in a patient affected by type 2 diabetes. Arterial hypertension, mild chronic renal insufficiency, benign prostatic hypertrophy”.
Today he had his stitches removed. The diagnosis is plantar dehiscence. There are no signs of perilesional inflammation. He will undergo his next check in 2 months.
I am worried because the wound looks dry superficially, but evidently, as there was dehiscence, this is not the case. Also, the doctor was very positive about it, so we wait and hope.
I don’t know whether to come to your Centre to receive another opinion. I would not wish the situation got worse if I made time pass.
Thank you in advance.
