Diabetes Complications!! Gangrene Diabetic Toe

Diabetes Complications!! Gangrene Diabetic Toe

I have a 5th toe on my left foot that has recently lost circulation and has turned to dry gangrene.
I was wondering if anyone was struggling with bad toes either with gangrene or the lack of circulation. It is very painful and my surgeon tells me he would rather have it shrivel and fall off by itself instead of surgery.
The pain day to day to unreal in a wide sneaker and even socks make it throb and burn.

I know how painful gang green is. I should ask an second opinian. They can help the bloodcirculation by arteficial artes. On the bad places by the artes. They made it by me. However it crashed. Later they had to amputade my underleg. Yes of course i missed my leg however i was free from pain. And i am stil walking by an prothesis.
