Prior to being diagnosed with cancer and dealing with the nonhealing wound, Leslie was a very active person. She enjoyed traveling, kayaking, shopping, camping and anything outdoors.
It was horrible. I thought I was dying. I thought I would work through the radiation and life would go on. I had a really rude awakening, Leslie said of her experience. It was very difficult to have cancer and a chronic wound at the same time.
After a few months, Leslie was referred to a Wound Care Center® to receive advanced wound care for her nonhealing wound. The health care providers at the Center determined that hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment would be the best option to help heal Leslies wound. HBO treatment increases the oxygen levels in the blood stream, which in turn, helps heal chronic wounds by creating new blood vessels.

I noticed right away, Leslie explained about her HBOT experience.
I wasnt in pain all the time. Six weeks after finishing treatment, Leslie was able to attend and enjoy her daughters wedding; a major goal she set at the beginning of her treatment process.
I was able to eat and dance and laugh! I accepted the fact that it worked! Leslie shared excitedly.
Leslie is now back to a normal routine of enjoying life cancer and chronic wound free. She is able to taste and enjoy food, spend more time outdoors kayaking, and she is even considering going back to work soon. Living life was put on hold for Leslie, but now she is back to enjoying the things she loves most.
