Prosím m ostaňte te ležať v posteli a vyzlečte si nohavice.

8 Now I will apply a bandage to your legs from your toes to the groin. Teraz Vám V m obviažem nohy od prstov po slabinu. I will start the turn under your toes which I will leave open for us to be able to control their colour and temperature. Obväz z začnem pod prstami, ktoré nechám m voľne, aby ste mohli kontrolovať ich farbu a teplotu. From toes to heel I will apply a spiral turn. Od prstov po pätu p urobím hoblinový obvin.

10 How do you feel? Ako sa cítite? c Isn t the bandage too tight? Nie je obväz z veľmi silný? If it is too tight or loosens, call me and we will make a new bandage. Ak Vás V s bude tlačiť alebo by sa uvoľnil, zavolajte ma a urobíme bandáž znova. If you go to the toilet, be careful not to make the bandage dirty.
