Also be sure to get plenty of Vitamin C. If you're not on blood thinners or other prescription medications that would prohibit its use, then you need to take 6,000 mg a day. But don't get it from a grocery store or pharmacy. Find out what the most absorbable type of C is online (my memory escapes me at the moment) and get it from a vitamin specialty store. If you don't have one locally, is a good place to buy supplements. Hope this helps.

I too had a pressure sore and the wound Doc said to keep off it. I spent 6 months in bed and only got up once a week to go to the wound Doc. It finally did heal and I am back in my chair with a Roho cushion all the time. Be sure and eat plenty of protein. I did not want to stay in bed either BUT the sore did heal, Rose In a message dated 9/21/2016 6:43:58 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time, writes:
