Treatment for gangrene is ongoing with thinners and anti-clotting medicine for drying. HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen therapy) is ongoing for left hand fingers. I am looking for ways to get fingers to recover to normal. I am ready to go anywhere in the world.

I had slow gangrene progression of the left thumb with pain. After local medical treatment I am a little rehabilitated but still not recovered. The microbe culture test report reveals its sensitivity to sulbactum group of antibiotics. I need further appropriate remedy.

My gangrene resulted in the amputation of right leg first, 6 years ago, and left leg this year. Both legs had multiple complications. The leg on the left had to have a vacuum pump on for over six months, and the right leg had MRSA to contend with (my entire body shut down). Very long recoveries but I'm a fighter and won't let it get me down.
