Hi,

If the gangrene is full blown or is there active infection, it is always better to remove the affected toe. You can seek help from a general surgeon and get evaluated. Wishing you good health.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,

Looking for an estimate/timeline for an 83 yr old with dry gangrene of the leg. She also is on dialysis. The Vascular doctor has said she is not eligible for amputation. Circulation is pretty much shot and they will not open her up to put in any more stints. We are looking at hospice with continued dialysis- how long will she be able to live before the gangrene takes over her body?

Hi My name is Mary and I have a friend who is in the hospital two hours away. His appendix burst and became gangrene a week ago. He is still not allowed to have even water by mouth. He told me several hours ago he feels like he is being tortured ( I think because he cannot have anything to wet his mouth and it is extremely dry and crusty) and he thinks they are going to send him home via hospice. His stomach is bloated, he did have his first bowl movement yesterday. Do you think he will recover?
