Hello.... Ulcers in diabetic patients is more dangerous because of delayed healing and non healing... He has both diabetic ulcer and peripheral nuropathy .. His leg is shrinked in size ... Moreover ulcer is there in bony prominence which is also not good factor for healing.. Doctor should examine to give opinion . consult general surgeon.
