Curious as to length of time it takes for gangrene to travel to your heart. The gangrene is located in both feet, some toes have already been amputated. Dealing with both dry and wet gangrene, blood flow below the knee is very restricted. Have chosen not to amputate at the knee on both legs. This info is all about my father (89 yrs old). He has had heart valve replacement done and his cardiologist believes the infection will be his demise within a month.

my husband had second toe amputated gangrene and the wound reopened after stitches removed. It started eating away at the big toe and acts like flesh eating bacteria. Two weeks between office visits are too long with the looks of both toes. I am concerned this type of gangrene can be a contagious transmission. Could I get this deadly bacteria by kissing him?

Hi my mother 65 had 2 strokes in 4 months she is unable to speak or move and has numerous bedsores one of which had been cleaned surgically. She is diabetic and has high blood pressure. She s been treated for acute renal failure and various infections. her iron levels are low. dr has put her on end of life care as they feel that there is nothing ore they can do for her. She now has dry gangrene in her feet and legs, the dr says there is no bloodflow to her legs, how long does she potentially have to live?
