A month 1/2 ago I had blister on left great toe, it became infected and went to bone. Dr. amputated toe. The wound became infected so they decided to preform a partial foot amputation. I have good circulation but no pain after surgery. A week later Dr. put a hard cast on foot. He ordered no walking or pressure on foot. At 1 week post op visit the wound looked good. I go back in 2 weeks for another cast refitting. My questions.. 1. Do these kinds of amputations usually heal without complications? n 2. Long term what am I looking at? 3. Am I higher risk for further amputations after this type of surgery? 4. What about wearing down the skin or skin tearing? I would love to hear personal story of people who has had partial foot amputation and their recovery experience.
P.S I* am 48 and am controlled Type II diabetic (insulin)
