Received call this morning, the stubborn old man who refused to have his leg amputated passed away after mid-night. When I saw him two weeks ago, the amputated toe was somehow still gangrenous. I told him to go for below-knee amputation but he refused. I explained the consequences to his children, hoping that they could persuade the old man to go for operation. The old man just refused. Unlike this old man, another similar case I saw some one month ago responded quickly to my advice and had below-knee amputation done on his left leg. You can see him walking on clutches at the garden near-by every evening.
Stubborness won't gain anything; it kills!!
