My Mom Has had planters warts on both feet for about 10 years now, every year it got worse. She decided after the 3rd year to go and see a doctor, he said he must cut away the warts under her feet. He did more damage than ever, he cut away most of her tissue under her feet but did not succeed in cutting out the planters warts, She has been in extreme pain ever since. The Doctor said that there is nothing he can do, because there is no more tissue to cut (it’s down to the bone). .
