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