When you have diabetes, proper foot care is very important. Poor foot care may lead to amputation of a foot or leg.
"Keep Bandages Clean and Dry: The bandages are in place for a purpose and will help to hold the surgical correction in place so it can heal. If you get the bandages wet, your infection chances increase. To help keep the bandages dry, get a waterproof cast protector usually available from your podiatrist’s office. Trash bags with tape do not work, so please do not use them. The cast protector will fit over your shoe or boot and should be used every time you bathe."
