In brief: Ulcer

Depends on many factors, is she diabetic.
Does she have good circulation? What is the size? There is no set healing time with ulcers and depend on treatment she is getting. We like to see all ulcers heal within 4 weeks.

In brief: Need source

You need to know what is causing the ulcer. It could be from bad veins or bad arteries, or an infection.
See your physician and ask if your mother should go to a vascular specialist.
