Brief Answer:
Can you upload his hospital reports for review!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I have reviewed this information. There is no straight forward answer to a complex issue unless much details are available. I will suggest that you provide me with a hospital report of the findings and laboratory tests for review such that i can gain more insights and provide guidance/a second opinion on what options are plausible. Equally, I will appreciate that you upload an image of this toe infection for review as well.

To upload an image/report, simply click on the link to upload a file and follow the instructions. If this proves difficult, please send the image by mail to YYYY@YYYY and request that the image should be uploaded to your query.

I do promise to get back to you with more insights and helpful recommendations as soon as the requested information gets here.
