I'm so sorry! Sending prayers and good wishes your way and for your brother. Wish I could do more.

Kimmar. I'm so sorry to read this and I'm so upset for you and your family. It is completely inconcievable to imagine losing a foot in today's 'modern medicine' world and I, too, wish I could do more.

I just find this whole situation inconceivable. Like PIO said, in today's age of medicine. What stupid pencil pusher could allow a decision like that to be made? Especially if progress was being made! It absolutely astounds me! Did he have some kind of wound like Fran? Was it an ulcer of some sorts? She has diabetes too so I know that the feet are particularly problematic.

....over the summer he was in S.C. on the beach and was standing on the hot sand for longer than he should have been. He's lost almost all feeling in his feet and he got a 2nd-degree burn. Within a week, it got infected and he's been in and out of the hospital 2 other times. They had to cut out quite a big part of the underneath part of his foot because of the gangrene and cover it with a skin graft and he was having a visiting nurse come 3 days a week to empty the cylinder that was attached to a vacuum thing on the wound (I forgot what it's called) that sucked out all the infection and loose pus or whatever. Well, about 2 weeks ago, the last nurse that came to his house, pulled that thing off too hard (?) and ripped the skin graft off the bottom of his foot, but DIDN'T EVEN TELL HIM! Suddenly, no one came for a week; he kept trying to call the nursing company but they gave him the runaround, until finally they said that his insurance ran out so they would not be providing any services. He went back to the doctor who yelled at him about the missing skin, which of course, he had no idea that it was, in fact, missing. However, by this past weekend the infection spread throughout his body and he got violently ill so he was rushed to the hospital. The infection is in the bones of his feet, so they have no choice but to cut it off. The docotr said it had deteriorated his toe bones, making them brittle and his toes were broken.....

I know nothing about this stuff.... but is it okay for her to rip skin off and not tell anyone?
Surely there's maybe a malpractice thing, or something similar in there? HE's losing his foot... and if that's to blame?

Might be worth looking into. It might not, either. I don't know law... but. It sounds shady.

My language over here as I'm reading this is not Dis-appropriate to repeat.

We don't have the same degree of litigation mentality over here (yet) as what it seems to be like over in the US.

But this Aussie is thinking that you and your family need to call the litigation specialist lawyer. That is just plain nuts and incompetence.

....my brother is out of surgery and is resting....they have to wait 2 days to perform a biopsy; if there's still signs of infection, they have to go back in and amputate more of his leg....and then the same procedure happens all over again....please pray that they've taken enough off so that he may start recuperating....
