I had a bone lifted off a pressure point about a year ago in my right foot. Well today I found out that it has happened again and it is damaging the nerves in my toes leaving the tingling feeling that my doctor told me was diabetes. The podiatrist said I should have been to see him months ago. My problem is not the foot surgery, It went great before. No problems, healed nicely and recovered fast. I was not diabetic then. Now I am. Is this going to make surgery more dangerous? Am I more prone to infection? Circulation problems? I am scared to death. My podiatrist says there are always risk with surgeries but they are also putting in a screw to hold the bone up this time and they did not do that before. What if my body rejects the object placed in there? am i just over analyzing the bad possibilities?
