My mom has had a fungating wound for about seven months now. It has increased in odor.
I have been an acute care nurse for over 20 years and have never seen the likes of this. She has had radiation treatments, and now is offered a 20 percent chance of reduction (for how long?) with chemotherapy. I think she is trying every effort to beat this squamous cell carcinoma (which is her primary, located in her left chest wall - not lung, not breast - nothing to show a primary).
I am thankful for all the online sites to help inform me and my family regarding fungating wounds.
