Does anyone know how long it takes these sores to heal?

What did your home care nurse say about it? Should you go have it looked at? I would think if it's getting worse you should go see someone. I don't know how long it should take to heal but if it's looking as bad as you say, please have it checked out.

Please, I'm telling you......go to a wound care facility. Don't wait as long as I did. I don't want you to lose that toe!
We're not ordinary Sadie.......we need to be our own advocates. Please, please, please make the appointment. I waited eight months before I got MYSELF to the wound care center. If I didn't, I would have lost my foot or possibly half my leg. I still may lose a good portion if this does not heal properly; I'm already past the 6-8 week healing period. I know my general practitioner feels awful about the circumstances and I'm thankful I went and tended to it myself!
Get up girl........go!
It is what it is...........

She said to call her if it gets worse. Then, we will go to the dr. I do have a appt coming up.
We will go sooner to the dr. if it gets worse.

Please do go soon and keep us posted. I really hope it heals up for you. I'm sorry you are having such issues with it. Shoot me an email or message me if you want to talk.

Though I've not had experience with this, the ladies who have responded to your thread... have.
So, please take care and know that you are very much in my thoughts.
Big Hugs, Susie

I agree with the others, try to get yourself to a wound centre Monday and get it looked at (be sure to explain your problems with healing due to this disease ok). Good luck!

Sorry your toe is not healing like you want it to. I'm afraid there is no time limit, everyone is different. I hope they can get on top of this for you.
Hang in there.
