Bonnie Gets Back on Her Feet
Over time Bonnie noticed a slow buildup of pain in her legs and feet, making daily activities such as walking and shopping with her family difficult. Sleep even became a challenge as the pain intensified.
Thinking the pain was due to gout or arthritis, Bonnie visited her doctor who discovered that she had several blockages in the arteries and veins of her legs. After several surgeries, Bonnie learned that a non-healing wound had developed causing a serious infection. Bonnie's surgeon recommended hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy to help heal the wound.
Bonnie was in awe at how quickly she could see the change in her wound after her HBO therapy. She encourages others who may need wound healing to talk about it with their doctors.
"I can only thank the doctors and nurses and everyone who contributed to my health," says Bonnie. "They were great."
