As a diabetic, your risks for complications are higher.
Although still uncommon, it is more likely for you to have infections or a delayed healing process.
For these reasons, it is important for you to keep all scheduled follow-up appointments and return sooner if any of the previously mentioned symptoms develop. Infections are also a major concern for this procedure, and your doctor will treat any early suspected infections more aggressively with the knowledge that you are diabetic.
Because of the risks involved with this procedure, it is essential for you to communicate with your team throughout the procedure so they can minimize any possible problems. Your team is trained to observe, evaluate and respond to any unusual situations that arise.
