I had an ongoing problem with leaking legs for well over a year. At worst the dressings needed to be changed five times a day. Fortunately, I was referred to Mr Adam Howard at The Oaks Hospital, Colchester in September 2022. Mr Howard suggested a SIGVARIS wrap for my left leg. When I saw him for a follow up appointment, he suggested a compression sock on my right leg as well. Best thing possible was to see Mr Howard, such a helpful and understanding consultant. My legs have now completely healed. A district nurse was coming daily to dress my legs, over recent weeks with SIGVARIS wrap and socks my legs improved and today the district nurse has been discharged. I suggested to the team leader, who came today, to encourage anyone who has an ulcerated leg to give SIGVARIS a try.
