I just want Everybody to know that I am a Charcot Survivor.
I was diagnosed in 2007 and suffered for years with the threat of Amputation. But, Luckily I found the right Doctor/Surgeon that saved My foot with reconstruction.
I am fully recovered and walking on 2 feet in Custom Shoes. I have 75% of My Life back.
I have created a Support Group on Facebook called,"Charcot Survivors".
We are a Group of Wonderful people who are learning to live with Charcot.
I make it fun and pose interesting questions and recipes
We share Our Highs and Lows.
Come join Us.

That is great Sheri, glad to hear success stories like yours!
I pray I'll never have Charcot Foot. I alredy have my plate full with my T2, and with my CKD for which I need dialysis. I also have several other "medical challenges" as my late wife used to laughingly call hers.

Praying God's best for you and yours
