Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation. Ulcers developing secondary to venous stasis would require treatment of the primary cause/ venous insufficiency, aside measures that would promote ulcer healing. There are a few interventional options developed lately that may be considered alternative to surgery, if it is not advisable. I would suggest considering a detailed evaluation by a vascular surgeon, preferably at a university/ teaching hospital for suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.
Thank you for your answer. I have gone to a # of vascular surgeons and they all are afraid to do any type of surgery on my leg. Due to the venous insufficiency. It was cause by the damage done to the valves in my leg. They all do not open like they should and leak blood into the tissue. Basically my right leg is black from the knee down. I was a very active person prior to the clots & still try to stay as active as I can. I have a 16 yr old son I have been teaching to archery hunt since he was very young. I enjoy being with him in the outdoors but the pain makes it very difficult.
Thanks again for your answer.
