As a diabetic, your risks for complications are higher. However, difficulty in healing is the main concern. For this reason, it is important to keep all scheduled follow-up appointments and return soon if any of the previously mentioned symptoms develop. Your doctor will treat any early suspected infections more aggressively with the knowledge that you are diabetic.
Because of the risks involved, it is essential for you to communicate with your team throughout the procedure so they can be aware of any possible problems. Your team is trained to observe, evaluate and respond to any unusual situations that arise.
