Hello there we undertsand your concern towards your father and your feeling too. Since you have told us that your father met with an accident and we are sorry for that firstly. Then you also told us that he is diabetic and over weight. Since in diabetic pateints the wound healinhg capacity will be too low so they want the current wound ti be clean heal faster so that they may proceed with internal fixation of the plate. That might their plan of treatment. For more information contact your doctor. Thank you
