Hi, My mom was recently diagnosed with Charcot's joint. She has been an insulin-dependent diabetic for over 30 years. She had osteomyelitis in her big toe about 10 years ago, which was amputated and a recent partial toe amputation on the other foot due to osteomyelitis. This Charcot's joint seems to be progressing fairly quickly since her diagnosis about 2 months ago. She keeps fracturing her foot and ankle, which is very concerning to me. Before the Charcot's joint issue, she was a very active person. She is in pain and I am not sure what I can do to help her, so that is why I am asking for any suggestions. Please help. Can anyone tell me about treatment options or surgeries that could help her prevent future amputation of that limb. Thank you for your time.
