A tiny “nick” on her ankle became a severely infected chronic wound

Joy remembers getting a “tiny nick” on her left ankle, but because of her type 2 diabetes and circulation issues that blocked blood flow to her legs, the “nick” developed into a terribly painful and severely infected wound.  Her treatment path included a revascularization procedure to restore blood flow to her leg, as well as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). Now, she’s making plans to return to her hobby of country line dancing.  Read Joy’s story on the Methodist Hospital Wound Clinic website.
