In brief: Yes

Yes.
If the underlying venous insufficiency was not addressed then a recurrence will occur. Another reason is non-compliance with the use of compression socks/wraps.

In brief: Yes

Venous insufficiency and associated ulcer disease is a long term problem and requires chronic management to avoid the recurrence.
Eradication of superficial insufficiency and compression therapy are the mainstays of treatment.
