    Hi Jamie,

    I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble with bed sores because they can be very difficult.  Treatment depends on the stage of your bed sores.

     

    Stage 1 can usually be treated by staying off the pressure areas, changing positions, and using pads or cushions to relieve the pressure.  Stage 4 may require surgury.

     

    Let me direct you to the Mayo Clinic where there is a clear explanation of the different treatments for each stage.

     

    Good luck.
