My Dad has gangrene in his foot. One part looks to be dry and hasn't really changed. The other part started the size of a dime 3 weeks ago I think and has now blackened his two and changes every day!?
Please help! He doesn't want surgury. Dr said he probably wouldn't make it. What should I expect in the months to come? He was admitted to Hospice 2 weeks ago!
Thanks for any help!
