Reezi, I understand the situation better now knowing what is causing the ulcers. My husband has venous insufficiency too from blood clots in his leg. I am assuming the drs are doing ultrasounds ever so often to check this. My husband recently had an ablation to the main vein in his lower leg with hopes of getting better blood flow in his leg. The reason for the procedure, getting too many ulcers on the leg & it more often than not takes a year for one to heal.
Work with the wound care nurse, ask questions about her trying different remedies for the wound healing. I would not use anything on this without the dr approving it. While you are trying to help there is a potential of you making it worse.
