Is my arm getting better? What do you think about Vacuum therapy and/or skin graft for me at this point? (photos)

Thank you for the question, and so sorry to hear about the wound and what you must have went through. The wound on your arm does look much better. It does not appear to be infected, and it is starting to develop red granulation tissue. The wound VAC will help the granulation tissue develop so that there will be a surface to place the skin graft, and it will help the wound to contract in size a bit. Best of luck and prayers to you for your healing.
