Ok, so people get gangrene infections on their extremities, it gets worse if not treated, and one end scenario is that the poor victim gets said extremity amputated.
I understand (basically) that it probably occurs more on the extremities because blood (and hence white blood cells or whatever fights infection) has to travel further to reach there…but…what if someone had an extremely infected wound on their head or neck which turned into gangrene? Is it possible? If it is possible, surely they can’t amputate someone’s head? What would they do?
Enlighten me please.
I asked this question on another board and my friends just thought I was weird or drunk. :rolleyes:
