Healed wound – What is life like after the wound is healed?

Here is a patient that had a wound under the outside of the foot.  It was there for many months and really what helped it to heal was staying off the foot with crutches and a off-loading boot.  However, once the wound is healed what is life like.  This patient’s life changed a little.  Now he wears a custom off-loading orthotic to reduce the pressure on the skin from the bony prominence.  As well he needs to be seen by a podiatrist every 9 weeks to have the callus trimmed.  His foot is not as forgiving because one little misshape and the wound could happen again.
