The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Please Help with abcess

I have a friend with an abcess on her hip. It happened after being in hospital for car accident surgery complications. Major surgery on leg, hip and foot (part of foot missing). had first surgery 5 years ago and many since. The boil appeared 6 months ago and is now to the bone and after months in the hospital they gave up with antibiotics. She was released to die. Constant pus coming from wound. she is still able to get around with the help of neuroton and oxycotin. I teach computer science at the local college and she is a student I want to help.

Will someone please take this case. I will help her with the form and administration of the remedies.

Bless you.

In the meanwhile please get this info from the relevant case doctor:

Why has the bullet not been removed surgically.

What are the risks if we try to remove the bullet with a medicine that will make the body expel the bullet

You have used the word 'abscess from ulcer'. Can we have a proper diagnosis if its abscess or ulcer and is it draining blood also or just pus.

Is there any smell in the pus.

Is the pus thick or watery.
 
fitness 8 years ago
-Why has the bullet not been removed surgically: She called her doctor; it is a bullet fragment lodged in nerve tissue that could possibly cause more damage if it moves. She wants to wait and think about it. Are you thinking staph?

-You have used the word 'abscess from ulcer'. Can we have a proper diagnosis if its abscess or ulcer and is it draining blood also or just pus:

The Doc called it: an ulcer, increasingly necrotic, unresoponsive to antibiotics.

-Is there any smell in the pus: odorless

-Is the pus thick or watery:

Mostly liquid mixed with viscous clear, no blood in pus.

Thanks again.

Don't order the remedy yet. There is a huge difference between ulcer & abscess. I prescribed based on abscess.

Let me re-evaluate the case. I may have more questions.

No, I wasn't thinking Staph.
 
fitness 8 years ago
Describe the ulcer's appearance in as much detail as you can.
 
fitness 8 years ago
Thanks. I have not ordered yet.

I will get back to you about the wound.

John
 
tahoejohn 8 years ago
It is about 4 inches around on top of skin decreasing in size as it deepens, it is void of flesh. It has been freshly scraped showing pink skin down into the hole. She said the MRI shows the void down to the bone (L1).

Hope this helps.

How did the ulcer look like before the scraping.

About her thirst, you wrote always need something, what do you mean by that.
 
fitness 8 years ago
The wound was covered with white scaled skin with leaking cracks until discharge was intense. It was purple and black under the skin.

Thirst: Likes to have something to drink to avoid 'throat feels scratchy.'

1-2 liters per day.

Your remedy is: Lachesis 200c.

HOW TO TAKE THE REMEDY:
Please take one dose. Just one dose. Not daily.
Report back in 5 days with changes observed.

TIME OF DOSE:
At night before sleeping.
Don’t take any more dose or any other remedy unless I tell you.

PILLS/PELLETS:
If your remedy is in the form of pills:
One dose is one pill.
Dissolve the pill in your mouth.

LIQUID REMEDY:
If your remedy is in liquid form:

During the course of treatment, don’t eat anything which you have never had all your life.

HOMEOPATHIC AGGRAVATION
Sometimes the symptoms for which treatment is being done can worsen after taking the homeopathic remedy. This is homeopathic aggravation and a good sign. It usually dies down within 24-48 hrs. During this time you can use any non-medicinal means to keep yourself comfortable. If the aggravation seems excessive, you can use any & all means necessary (including taking allopathic medicines) to keep yourself comfortable. Keep your homeopath fully updated if this happens.

HOW TO GIVE FEEDBACK:
A good example of how to report your progress is by giving %age improvement for all your health problems e.g.
Headache: 30% better
Low energy level: 50% better
Anxiety: 40% better
Sadness: No change
Depression: Worse
And so on list all your complaints.

GENERAL INFO ABOUT HOMEOPATHIC PRESCRIBING:
If someone is giving several remedies, without waiting to see the effect of one remedy, then it is totally against the core principles of homeopathy. Such an approach is unlikely to give permanent cure, rather it may distort actual symptoms making subsequent cure even more difficult.

Excellent. Keep me posted. No more doses.
 
fitness 8 years ago
Get Calendula Q (mother tincture) and start giving her 5 drops in some water, daily.

No more doses of Lachesis till I tell.
 
fitness 8 years ago
I will get Calendula Q today if I can.

You are awesome.

John
 
tahoejohn 8 years ago
I cannot get the homeopathic q tincture but I did find Calendula Oil. Ingredients:
'Certified organic olive oil, certified organic Calendula extractives.' For external use of course. Made by Herb Farm www.herb-farm.com.
Is this the same as Q with olive oil or should she use it externally. Alternatives?

It will take about a week to get anything here by mail.

Hi- what is on this link is not a mother tincture ( mother tinctures are what
all the rest of homeopathic potencies are made from) They are often listed
as potency Q.

Google Calendula Mother Tincture- Amazon will show up and you can order
it online from Washington Homeopathics- get the smallest bottle. This, you
can take in drops as Fitness prescribed.

Thanks simone717 I have Calendula Q coming in on Monday.

For Fitness:

Pamela is ill now. She is vomiting with nausea and malaze. Started yesterday morning 6/19/2014.

If its food poisoning, let the system get out the infection.

If there is no letting up within 24 hrs, give her this mixture:

In half glass of water, put one tea spoon of white vinegar, stir and drink it.

Soon after, drink a few sips of water to flush the vinegar taste.

Keep me posted.
