General Surgeon 's  Response
Dear Madam
It is very difficult to know what is the cause of deep wound and the prognosis. Decision is made by seeing the findings in person and detailed examination and investigation including study of arterial and venous system. Kindly take a second opinion from general surgeon or avail the paid services of this website
