DEAR Jjmorgan,
Welcome to HCM.
YOU JUST TRY THIS METHOD BEFORE GOING FOR SURGERY. Even after surgery it may recur for some individuals and wound healing will be very much delayed because of deep rooted wound and disable from your normal routine for days together.
You just have thorough wash of you foot and make it dry. Then apply SALICYLIC Acid anything between 20- 30 %Over the corn not on normal surface. Cover with a strip of plaster tightly around your foot and left un-removed for two nights and third night repeat the same procedure upto 2-3 weeks. Your corn will get dissolved and come out . Then regularly brush your foot with afoot brush or against a rough surface daily during bathing. You will get rid of your problem. You have to give up smoking if you have the same.
Get well soon.
