    I know ESWT but why 11 ?? To helps with re-vascularisation to an ulcer border - help reduce the size of the wound.
    I assume strong antibiotics and debridement of the gangrenous tissue would have occurred as well.
    Once the gangrene was eliminated form the body and specialised wound dressings applied it would be then possible for the wound to close.
    Diabetic ulcers are the slowest to heal.
    What type of pain medication was used? Aspro, Dispirin, Oxycontin, ???
    Lacking on a lot of the details
