    Yes, what jack said! Perhaps your friend might let us help him at last when he is over the operation?

    Fingers crossed for him Cath. That's one seriously tough break.

    This is certainly a sobering thread, and one for anyone considering an approach of "tomorrow I'll do x, y or z".

    How sad, hope they can save his foot, I am at the moment laid up with a broken ankle that I am not allowed to weight bear on it, it is the most disabling thing I have ever had and I know I am going to be fine in a couple of weeks. To be in your friends position to be permanently without a foot must be devastating - I really do wish him well and hope that this gives him the motivation to get his diabetes in check
