Hi thanks for your query. I am dr akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. That' s not good to hear, but you can do following things: 1) to turn in bed every 2 hours and not allow pressure to stay at one particular point for a long time 2) use of air mattress at home 3) high protein diet 4) there is a dressing which comes from smith & nephew which is very useful for this. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr akshay kumar saxena Consultant orthopaedics fortis hospital, new delhi
