Can you tell me if a super morbidly obese person lost the weight, would they still have complications?

How heavy they were, how much weight they lose, what medical problems they had, how severe they were, etc. However, no matter how you look at it, the super obese individual that loses a significant amount of weight will be much healthier and have a lower risk of death than if they stayed super obese. ...Read more

This sounds like an issue that needs to be addressed by a medical provider. She may have a fungal or bacterial infection that needs to be treated with oral medication only prescribed by a doctor.
If her doctor does not make house calls, then an arrangement has to be made so this woman can get medical care right away.
I would recommend that a social worker get involved in this case. A social worker will be able to arrange for home health care and other services that are so desperately needed. Her primary care provider's office should be able to supply you with information on how to contact a social worker. ...Read more

Provides good quality protein, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, b6, b12, probiotics. ...Read more

Simple Care: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more

A "supratentorial" problem might be a way of referring to psychological issues, since these are thought to arise through cognitive and emotional processes. This is a huge oversimplification of the life problems people experience. ...Read more
