Our expert says:
You need to adopt a team approach, and certainly there is a team at the moment, your physician, your surgeon, and the physio. You must add a podiatrist to this team to not only take an active role in foot and nail care, but also to advise you on shoe selection, but also to be there to initiate emergency treatment of the crises like blisters cuts etc.. While this may seem trivial having a professional cut your toe nails and dress a blister, remember the surgeons advice, on not getting infections..
