Keeping Their Distance



2368

I don’t know exactly what those things on your legs are, but I’m pretty sure they used to be pantyhose which decided that instead of being stuck up there they would just wilt and deteriorate until they are at a safe distance.

    If she turns around you’ll be able to see her trunk.

    Those actually look like they may (at least at one point) be compression socks which are used to help with circulation.

    Regardless, that woman seriously needs to rethink her wardrobe!

    Those are leg wraps. They wrap the leg from the toes up to the knee and use padding underneath for sores. My father gets them done. Oh by the way, i like this site but poking fun at someones medical condition is kind of i dunno… LOW.

  23. this is in poor taste overall, the way she is dressed for public, but it does look like support hose. Funny pics at walmart is in poor taste also. who are you to do this, this may be funny to some people, but it might also mean that you shouldn’t be looking to make fun of people, have you nothing better to do, or do you get paid for this. you need to go to nightclubs to take pics of those that put their selves in the position to be made fun of instead of people shopping for things they need, take a long look at yourself. shame on you and walmart for doing this.

    I’m in healthcare, and have worked with this type of therapy as well as TED hose and compression socks.

    Those are neither TED hose nor any other form of compression socks. They are Ace bandages over gauze. They’re used for edema. The gauze absorbs the fluid that weeps out of the pores. You can’t layer the compression hose over gauze, and trust me, you want the gauze!

    Many people get edema, due to disease, medical treatments, or allergic reactions. Roughly one third of the patients I’ve taken care of in the last 10 years have had mild to severe edema which means… most of you will have it too! (Oh, and that’s not counting any of you ladies who’s ankles swelled with pregnancy!)

    So keep laughing guys! :)

    Actually they are suppression stockings most likely for a medical condition called lymphedema. A condition I myself suffer from. The lymph-nodes can no longer pump the fluid out of a portion of your limbs and causes severe swelling and often time weeping. The only course of action, a-hole, is to wear stockings that help restrict the swelling so that your legs do not build up with too much fluid. Unfortunately it is the only treatment and eventually this poor woman, like myself will face the possibility of losing her legs. But hey, make fun of her… go ahead.

    Being a person who has worn those wraps(ankle surgery), it’s called coband it a medical wrap the provide compression before, during and after surgery. Not sure what stage she’s at but I’m guessing she’s not wearing the protective boot that usually accompanies the bandages. Obviously she cares more about what she looks like rather than taking care of herself. Either way It’s not funny, the rest of her outfit is something all together messed up beyond all help.

    This woman is wearing compression bandages. This is common for those being treated for a medical condition called Lymphedema and is in now way funny in the least! This is the second photo POW has posted making fun of someone with a disability today alone. I think someone should really be doing a bit more research about their content prior to posting. While I find some of the photos on this site funny.. there is nothing funny about making fun of someone who is suffering from a medical condition/handicap!

    @MAC- I’m sorry that you suffer from such a horrible condition, I know someone who has it too. Stockings like that aren’t just for lymphedema, people who spend lots of time on their feet at work (like my mother who’s an RN) and diabetics use them too. They actually look like they might just be ratty knee-highs.

Thought this site didnt make fun of ppl with medical issues.. its pretty lame. Tho the shoes are not the best for her and the shorts are a little short she is at least covered.

    Those are compression wraps – using Coban and Surepress. It’s to help reduce the swelling in a persons legs – for a variety of medical reasons.

    @Mac – you would sound more informed if you know what to call them – no such thing as “supression” wraps – but thanks for the giggle

    Really? Really? Damn, if this picture is recent can I point out that it was 2 degrees in Missouri today??

    Even if she does have some medical condition I’m still laughing at her choice of outfits. To leave the house looking like this calls for it. No matter the medical condition. I was offended at people mocking the guy in the helmet, because most likely he had no choice, but to wear it. And how do you hide a helmet? But DAMN people She’s makin’ all SORTS of fashion faux pas even before we get to the stockings? Socks?

    Also I think they are just ratty knee-highs!

    shes a diabetic the things on her calves keep her blood warm to help with circulation so she will not lose her leg below her knee caps, another reason is to help the swelling, that is where fluid build up occurs.

    I too have to meander around with similar stockings. During Southern California summers, shorts are mandatory even if people have to see your ugly medical necessity garments. There are a number of conditions listed by others here in which medical compression shown here is necessary. It is sad that people have pinpointed this poor woman for her health condition when we all know there are more “appropriate” persons to poke fun at. Think about it – would you post a photo and make fun of a bald woman who is undergoing chemo and radiation for breast cancer?

    Actually, the woman is wearing a form of Unna boot. It is a compression dressing for people with open wounds on the lower legs secondary to poor circulation. It is most often comprised of 3 layers: an initial gauze layer impregnated with zinc, a soft absorbent dressing or wrap, and then Coban or self-stick stretch bandage. It looks fresh, as if just recently done, and the womanprobably wore shorts to the doctor so she wouldn’t have to remove her pants.
    It’s often a quite painful condition, and can end up debilitating. And I also admire her for not using the motorized cart!

    The stuff on legs looks like (Coban) and gauze coban is an elastic bandage that binds to it’s self. She might have burns or another type rash that needs ointment and covered. I do not think that she is trying to make a fashion statement, the coban is uncomfortable to wear. ( I have worked in health care for many many years)
    It is the pink short shorts that is an oh no you didn’t moment.

    The material is too thin to be compression bandages, no edges or overlap. I agree with a previous poster–ratty knee highs. The elasticity and dye in cheap stockings can break down to form irregular patterns like this.

    IMHO? From top to bottom – or from inside to outside: A pink night gown, over which she’s put on grey shorts and T-shirt and pulled the hem of the night down down into the legs of the shorts. On the legs – dressings (you can see a portion of a white one on the left leg, over which has been wrapped co-ban – self sticking bandages, with sheer, knee high stocksing to keep the whole mess in place. On her feet, platform knock-off Crocs from God knows where. I’m off to go stare at my nursing degrees while the eye bleach kicks in…..

I agree on the med socks……..look like mine, although it is time for her to get a new pair. I also thought her outfit looks like she pulled a gray short set over her hot pink swimsuit, which has a granny skirt attached. I also wonder if the super thick souls on her shoes is to help with a foot problem like a bone spur?

The problem is, noone ever asks their opinion on anything or even cares for that matter so they come to this site and let the well of information flow. Shut the hell up trying to lecture people on what’s funny and what isn’t, how in the hell are you any different when the only reason you come to this site is to laugh at someone.

If you look in the distance you will se others in shorts. So this is not a current photo as it has been a high in the 2o’s all week in Missouri. Bet the shoes are flip flops gone wrong or med shoes for a bone spur.

    @Selena- I’m wearing a 20-30mg/hg compression sock over a non-stick pad covering a wound and held in place by gauze wrap right now, as directed by a licensed doctor at a major hospital’s wound recover center; after spending a month in 4 layers of varying tension compression wraps. The top layer being nothing more than ‘ace’ bandages . Where did you get your medical degree?

    They are NOT ace wraps…they are a special material called Coban. They are wrapped over bandages for compression and/or protection for wound care. I had a terrible bout with cellulitus last winter, and had a wrap nearly identical to these changed weekly on my left leg for 8 weeks. Making fun of her for a medical issue is low. Shame on you.

When it was hitting 100 degrees out, screw what fashion police dictated – I HAD to wear shorts, those things are hot & uncomfotrable as it is, was not about to roast in pants or jeans. @ the person so concerned about us spreading disease, sorry, we have nothing that’s contagious, but we sure as hell have to worry about the germs/bacteria/virus you are shedding to complicate our conditions.

    Im surprised even the healthcare workers are getting this wrong. Those are wrapped tightly, which means they are not for wound care. They are not ace bandages or compression stockings. Its Flex wrapp over a gauze padding. Often used in Diabetics with wound care if done snug but not tightly. When wrapped tightly it would be because she has Lymphedema in her legs. My Mother has this and ive applied theese bandages to her for Both Wounds and her Lymphedema. These wraps are changed daily as they fluid is massaged out of the leg.

    Go to Walmart, in the same aisle as ace bandages and look for “Coban”, and then you will know what is wrapped around her legs. It is kind of “self stick”. My grandma uses it all the time in her profession. It is not a nasty thing if she has to use it for a medical condition. Would you like for her sores or something be exposed? Get real…

    Those are indeed wound dressings, looks like a gauze rolled dressing covered with something called “coban”, a flesh-toned disposable elastic dressing that is self adherent, similar to an ace but applies more consistent pressure.

    Could also be to cover upa disease or support her ankles, trombose is a pretty nasty disease, I’d rather keep that blood bubble in my legs rather then in my lungs and die. Life over looks I’d say.

    Those are medical compression bandages, which are generally used to treat really bad skin wounds like big cellulitis infections and venous stasis ulcers. You DON’T want to see what’s underneath, trust me. Puts shock horror movies to shame.

    Yeah… That looks a lot like Koban. A self-adhesive medical wrapping. I think you can even see some of the gauze sticking out near the top of it on the left leg. lol I guess a pair of Jeans or hell, even sweat pants were a bit too much to ask…

    Those are probably coban wraps used to cover una boots. They’re frequently used for stasis ulcers, poor circulation, and edema. We see them a lot where I work. We do not, however, encourage people to run around with shorts on to show them off. They are not TED hose, you can see the white una boot under the coban.

    They are called una-boots and they are a medical treatment. The rest of the outfit is fair game but keep to your goal of not making fun of medical needs. This is the second one I have seen.

    They are Unna boots for skin ulcers. I wouldn’t be out showing them off myself.. Be glad they are on-I’m sure the ulcerated skin under them isn’t too pretty (and usually doesn’t smell too good either!)

    Actually those are Lymphedema wraps. And knowing from expirience in the medical field the condition is pretty painful and nefariously foul smelling.

    It looks like an unna boot…damp ace wrap with coband around it…she is probably a diabetic and has venous or arterial ulcers. Its a wound care management technique

    She just had surgery on her legs. How do I know this?? I saw a lady in a gorcery store who had an even more ridiculous outfit on with wrapped legs just like that,who exclaimed: ‘I just had leg surgery!’…She must have seen my bewildered look as she approached me..hmmm

    Those are actually called unna boots. Sorry if I happen to know this, because my Mother use to have these on her legs twice a month.

    Unna’s boot is a special gauze (usually 4 inches wide and 10 yards long) bandage, which can be used for the treatment of venous stasis ulcers and other venous insufficiencies of the leg. It can also be used as a supportive bandage for sprains and strains of the foot, ankle and lower leg. The gauze is impregnated with a thick, creamy mixture of zinc oxide and calamine to promote healing. It may also contain acacia, glycerin, castor oil and white petrolatum.

    She doesn’t necessarily have to be a diabetic. Those are called Unaboots. Bandages impregnated with zinc oxide and other stuff so the skin doesn’t break down. They are used for wound care and/or to assist with edematous legs. Diabetics as well as venous insufficiency patients get them to help in would care and assist in venous blood return. The brown bandage is elastic bandaging to keep the unaboot on. These are clean. They usually look nasty with ooze coming out of them. Pseudomonas are my favorite…..NOT!

    THis is a pretty sad site. The fact that people like to come here and make fun of others means they must not feel too good about themselves. It’s pathetic that so many of you need to feel superior by tearing others down. Absolutely pathetic.

    These are wound dressing. My father has to wear them. The “pantyhose” remark was just ignorance.
    On the other hand though, her outfit is certainly Wal-Creature worthy.
