Update: listened to infectious disease Doc, put me on Cipro, then went to a wound center. Doing Hyper baric chamber, things are moving along well, wound should be healed in another 2 weeks, then cipro once a day for a couple of months. I can still count to ten on my toes

PS again I'm not diabetic, this may not work with diabetics.

Hi,

Thanks for the last update, now that it has been a month, I was wondering if you have a healthy update now?

I hope so!

I'm so glad things are working well for you. May you continue to be blessed in all that the docs can do for you!

Slow but steady progress might take to the end of the month, fingers crossed. Can't wait to get to Maine for the summer

No way I can answer you question directly. Your Doctor will give you the best estimate.
BIL had a piece of skin loose on his toe. Pulled it off. Could't feel it due to Diabetic Neuropathy. Subsequent infections and bone infection led to toe amputation hybaric chamber treatments antibiotics infusions in the hospital a large open wound on foot and lose of second toe. After about a year Dr released him. He wore tennis shoes or whatever the descriptive label is, like so many Folks. Sweat and bacteria caused the problem and then MRSA from pet dog.
If in good health, realtively, and you listen to the Doctor it might be six months. I have no way of knowing just an opinion.
Good luck
