    My spouse was recently diagnosed by a foot doctor with Charcot foot. He's waiting to get his CROW boot. His foot swelling does seem to go down during the night and his foot starts to swell again in the mornings. Is this typical with Charcot foot? I thought with this condition the swelling never goes away

    You may want to discuss the initial misdiagnosis with a personal injury lawyer specialising in medical negligence.

    @aalexandrou - I don't think you mean to be quoting me. To my knowledge, my diabetes hasn't been misdiagnosed.
