Patient : My husband us diabetic and has a really bad wound on the bottom of his right foot. They want to put a cast on his foot to take the pressure off of his wound so it will get well. He has had this wound for over 6 months. How is this cast going to work? My concern is that we will not be able to doctor the wound and no air will get to the wound. What should we do and how will the cast help?
