Hi, a colleague of mine has history of DVT at his right leg and recently had a scratch at the lower leg below the knee from moving. The wound had gotten bigger as 4cm and the pain is excruciating. He has been seeing a vascular surgeon for treatment for a month now. Other then wound care every two weeks, any suggestions from the Chinese or herbal meds? The skin will eventually need a graft but the underlying problem, DVT is pending on a venogram to be performed next week as ultrasound Doppler showed the proximal femoral vein has a narrowing.
We both work at the Cath and Interventional Radiology lab. Pretty much know about DVT treatment options. What would be the suggestions from the accupuncher and the natural herbal remedies?
Thank you in advance for the help. He is not a diabetic but has DVT.
