This may turn you off buying new five-inch heels for life.
Lorraine Burnett, a 37-year-old from Dunfermline in Scotland, had purchased a new pair of heels to wear to a Christmas party.
When she woke up with blisters the next day but she thought nothing of it. Yet two years later, she was facing the amputation of one of her legs.
"I'd stayed out dancing until the early hours, so thought nothing of achy feet. But then two years later I was having my leg removed," Lorraine said.
"It breaks my heart to think my five inch heels cost me my leg."
When the blister on her left leg hadn't healed after a week, Lorraine was prescribed antibiotics by her doctor. The wound didn't respond to treatment, and soon, she was unable to walk.
Two years later, doctors recommended she have her lower leg removed to avoid enduring the infections for the rest of her life.
Doctors believed that Lorraine's Type 2 diabetes prevented the wounds on her legs from healing. Those who suffer from the condition are up to 30 times more likely to lose a limb when they suffer an injury to their extremities.
