Mum is losing her big toe
I don't know if I'm in the right place, but I ended up here while googling advice. I have already read quite a few things and am more and more confused.
My mum (69) is diabetic and has had problems with her feet for many years. She has had several operations on her lower right leg, etc... So far it has always turned out well, but now, after a knock, part of her left big toe has turned black and she will probably have to have it amputated tomorrow. Does anyone have any experience with this? Is it still possible to walk without the big toe or will she not be mobile at all? Does anyone have any experience with rehab or aids?
I am grateful for any advice and experience, because at the moment I am just confused and don't know how to comfort my mum....
