54 year old man
type two diabetic taking insulin
Previous blood clot, on blood thinners.
My dad punctured his ankle in our screen door (aluminum) and it made a hole in his ankle.
We cleaned it up and it was good, but then a few days ago it started to bleed at work and the ankle started to get swollen.
Today, at work (he has a physical job) he said it was very painful to stand on.
What should we do?
I'm sorry to say that between diabetes, blood clots, blood thinners, and a wound, he should have seen a doctor immediately. Antibiotics are probably necessary and the wound may have to be cleaned. Don't waste time and see someone. This is nothing to be trifled with.
