    Micro-plumbing takes a long time. I might even be inclined to take heart from the length of time, in that there hasn't just been a quick look, then go for end game. My get feeling is that could have been relatively quick.

    I'd encourage you to stay positive.

    Thanks for the update Cath, and best wishes to your friend in his recovery and hope that he can then start to turn things round and avoid further complications.

    That must be such a relief Cath. It's a shame about his toes, but comparatively a better outcome.

    With luck, today will be a pivotal day in his diabetes management.

    That re-plumbing malarky or seriously clever stuff!! How long was he in theatre in the end?

    I am glad your friend is "ok" and will still be able to go for walks with you. There is always hope that this incident will shake his world just enough that he sees the importance of better control... If so, and I know you will, try and make him come her and we will help him. He can also give us his experience so that we are all encourage to strive for further healthiness.

    not sure that comes over right but hopefully you get the gist
