Getting treatment for Foot Ulcers

Recently, I have been getting treatment for my ulcers under my both feet. I have been suffering from these ulcers since long. But, I didn’t experience so much trouble¬†with them all through this long period as of recently. So, I had to get them treated by surgery and through medicines.

In the first week of April, I got the surgery for one foot and it took 2 weeks to get fully cured. They removed the ulcers by minor surgery and prescribed some antibiotic medicines and pain relief tablets. Further, I have been advised to wear some special shoes that put lesser pressure to the operating portion of the foot while curing. They are soft sandals with holes (actually they cut and remove a portion of the layers from the shoe according to the size of the ulcer) to accommodate the sensitive part of the foot for curing without inflicting pain or pressing the sensitive portion. You can wear it very easily with full comfort even over the bandaged foot.

I got the second foot surgery on 5th of this month and I am still wearing the bandage as it is not fully healed. But, I am feeling very much relieved from the pain, stress, and inconvenience that I had been experiencing all through those years. I am able to perform all my work including cooking by standing in the kitchen for long durations (presently I am living with my son who is still unmarried and we are only two here at present as my wife passed already 4 years back) by wearing those sandals.

Now, within next week, I hope I will be fit again with my feet. I am sharing this experience as it may help others undergoing such problems.

Life is not a gamble

gamble

Life is a play. Play it wisely and smartly. It is not for gambling with high hopes of success and treasure.

Life’s for living happily and it is in our own way of thinking what is happiness. Real happiness is in living a simple life and making others also feel happy with your acts. It is not in pursuing gamble and risking the very purpose of life to achieve greedy and unrealistic goals.

Life is to face problems and solve them. It is not to evade responsibilities and seek refuge from challenges. Life requires much perseverance, determination and endurance.

Know the purpose of your life, set some achievable goals and pursue them without indulging in gamble. Do not get discouraged by failures or distractions. Continue your efforts like the spider that spins a web inspite of so many falls. Success will be there waiting for you.
