Ulcer in left leg
My brother has an ulcer in left leg for the last 3 years now. He was already tested for diabetes and bone infections, and the reports ruled out both. Please note he is mentally retarded and keeps standing for long hours. We have seen dermatologist and general surgeon but there is no permanent relief. Also because disciplined medication is a challenge since he is not open to take medicines or any other treatment. Doctors have advised to keep his leg at an angle above the heart but again he does it only rarely. Please advise. Your help will be much appreciated. Thank you.
