In brief: Recovery time varies

Recover time will vary depending on many factors including age, general health of the patient, infection control, blood sugar control, and follow up care.

In brief: Control blood sugar

The key is good control of blood sugar.
This is usually a complication of uncontrolled long standing diabetes. Monitor his hba1c and keep it below 7. Avoid fatty foods. Certain medications can be used as well to promote proper function of the stomach.
