DIABETIES HEEL SPURS SURGERY

Posted by BERTA H. on 4/19/02 at 09:46 (080278)

MY MOTHER HAS BEEN HURTING FROM HER LEGS FOR ABOUT HALFA YEAR OR MORE. THE DOCTOR FINALLY DID SOME TEST AND TOLD HER THAT SHE HAD HEEL SPURS. SHE IS A DIABETIC TAKES INSULIN AND PILL, AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. SHE TAKES ABOUT 8 PILLS A DAY NOW. MY QUESTION IS WHAT ARE THE INJECTIONS LIKE AND THE PRECAUSTIONS, AND SURGERY PROCEDURES FOR A DIABETIC AND WILL SHE BE OFF OF HER FEET, AND FOR HOW LONG? IS THIS BAD FOR HER. VERY WORRIED?
