This diabetic patient had a really bad abscess. Worse still he could not even feel it when I cut off all the dead tissue.

What is the recovery rate like? My friend's mum had just a cut on the foot, but 6 months later, she had to amputate her leg right above the knee. She died not long after that.

doc, how do i avoid this? I'm a bit worry as my family has diabetic background. Both from father and mother side. I think I have just to stop taking sugar!
