From 3 weeks agao she felt pain in her leg and foot burning sensation and sometimes it's severe and senstivity in her foot so she saw her orthopedic yesterday and told her your leg start to weakness and she will be needing a surgery but because of her age is not good idiea for her and she would have complications after that so now she is so worried and she would like to know if she didnt have the surgery would she have any complication in her because of her nerve could it heals on its own or at time she needs to have the surgery. thanks
